Re: virtual tours- live streaming versus slides

November 21st 2020

Re: [talk] virtual tours- live streaming versus slides AlohaLive streaming is great if your target audience is available at the time you are streaming. Recordings are better for those of us (including classrooms) who might not be able to attend at a specific time. Your outreach will be greater with recordings / slides. An example if Kaci in Alabama live streams a presentation at 10 am CST it is 6 am HST not a good hour for students or individuals. When Dawn's site is on DST 10 am is 4 am HST. The ...Continue Reading

Re: virtual tours- live streaming versus slides

November 20th 2020

Re: [talk] virtual tours- live streaming versus slides We are a historic house museum. We filmed tours of our current exhibitions - 15 minutes in length - and placed them on our YouTube channel for free viewing. We have not yet film tours of our permanent exhibitions. I'm not opposed to doing more, and giving them out for free. All of these have been non-live due to a) the low speed internet available to us - streaming from gallery would be low quality, b) the lack of camera and mic equipment to ...Continue Reading

DEAI Work

November 19th 2020

DEAI Work Hello everyone! We have just started a staff group to focus on DEAI work in our museum. We started by doing the MASS Action Readiness Assessment and talking about our results. Our discussions have been rich and interesting, but we're not entirely sure what our next steps should/could be. We're curious to know how other museums have used the results of this assessment to move forward in their work. We are also trying to be conscious of colleagues who aren't on the DEAI team and keepin ...Continue Reading
