¶ Platforms

Platform selection will influence decisions about site organization and design, among other things. You may or may not start out knowing what platform you want to use, or you may change your mind about the chosen platform based on the way you want to organize your exhibit, the way you want visitors to interact with it, and whether you want to have the object available in digital collection form as well.

  • Whether exhibits should be navigable linearly, non-linearly, or both

  • The types and level of interactivity desired

  • Accessibility for the disabled
