This activity will create guides for end-users to inform and encourage use of the dashboard and storytelling tools. The guides will demonstrate the uses of the tools to upload 3D media, how to select content from Europeana and Sketchfab and how to include these materials in the templates to create resources for education, tourism, research and cultural institutions both for use within the story-telling platform and on other devices. At least one template for each of the main use cases mentioned, ie. education, tourism, research and cultural institutions will be created. One of the aims of the guides is to encourage the creation of high-quality content made available through Europeana for re-use, to promote best practices and standards in the creation of content and metadata, and to promote open licencing.
The guidelines will cover:
- How to use the dashboard for uploading 3D models to Sketclifab and how to complete the metadata needed for Europeana
- Relevant standards and practices for the creation of 3D content and metadata
- How to use the storytelling tools to discover materials made available via Europeana and Sketchfab, how to use the templates to embed digital objects and to add text and annotations, and links to contextual resources.
The guidelines will demonstrate uses of the dashboard and storytelling tools for different target audiences including for education, tourism, research and the creative industries; linked to case studies developed under activity 4.
