Audio Tour uptake rates

Audio Tour uptake rates Good afternoon, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens transitioned our audio tour from hand-held devices to an app and web-based platform, which visitors now access from their own mobile device.

In my experience with evaluation, a great place to start is with your "research question" or goals- what do you want to learn about your program or visitors? Why do you want to know that?
