CATCH

"CommunicAtion Technologies for Cultural Heritage (e-learning)"


Period: January 2006 - July 2008
Type: Swiss Virtual Campus
Status: Completed
Website: www.swissvirtualcampus.ch

Overview

The world of cultural heritage (CH) is rapidly evolving: new technologies (like the Internet, the World-Wide-Web, mobile devices, 3D graphics, GPS, 3G cellular phones, etc.) offer new, unexplored ways to communicate content, both to professionals and to wide audiences. CATCH will develop a blended learning course on the use of advanced communication technologies in cultural heritage. The target public are students in communication sciences, in computer sciences and cultural-heritage related disciplines. Important targets are also professionals in the cultural institutions, who already demonstrated interests in accessing learning courses on these topics. The course will cover topics related with design of technological enhanced applications, the e-learning environments and solutions, the new 3D technology involved in the field and the technologies related to the antiquities.
