Creating Mobile Experiences with TourML and TAP

A session at MCN 2012

Wednesday 7th November, 2012

2:00pm to 5:30pm (PST)

TAP is an open-source software toolkit for the creation of museum mobile experiences. Along with the TAP initiative a specification for tour content has been developed, called TourML, which allows for the portability and interoperability of tour content. This hands-on workshop will walk attendees through the process of installing the TAP authoring tools, creating a tour, and deploying the tour to web and iOS based applications. A discussion will also be held to explore how TourML can be used for connecting tour content to other applications, including museum websites and third-party mobile tour applications. Attendees will learn how to manage multi-lingual tour content and create new types of mobile experiences. No coding experience is required, but familiarity with authoring in web-based content management systems, such as Drupal, Wordpress, or Joomla is recommended.
