2013-05-25 Advisory Board Meeting in Stralsund

On 25 May during the open day on the little island of Dänholm between Stralsund and Rügen the fourth German Advisory Board took place at the Nautineum, one of the four branches of the oceanographic museum in Stralsund. The members of the Advisory Board, among them representatives from the Nature Discovery Centre Müritzeum in Waren and the Tourist Board Western Pomerania, tested the eGuide-tour after a short introduction into the use of the devices. In the ensuing discussion the participants commended the easy handling of the digital dialling of object numbers and the map for a better navigation in the open area and support in finding the POIs. Especially small and inconspicuous exhibits gain more visitors’ attention because of the interesting stories that are connected to the objects and spoken by sympathetic and authentic speakers. The variety of the presentation of additional information, such as e.g. photos and movies would make the museum visit more interesting. Michael Mäuslein, curator of the Nautineum, expects a higher satisfaction of the visitors implicating increased word of mouth advertising.
Finally the members of the Advisory Board discussed future possibilities to improve the eGuide-tour e.g. offering the app in the app store and introducing a GPS-function for a better orientation.

2013-04-26 Successful eGuide-test in the Nautineum Stralsund

In the last week of April the first eGuide-test in the Nautineum in Stralsund took place. Beside museum staff also students from Stralsund University – among them three exchange students from China - took part. The test succeeded despite rainy weather, and also the Chinese students were fascinated by the eGuides. “From China I just know audio guides, but none with pictures and videos.”, says Ziyan Zhang. The student of Leisure and Tourism Management likes especially the possibility to use different audio response and texts. The student of economics Yibo Ming praises mainly the good usability, “It’s very easy and understandable”. The eGuide runs on a commercially available iPod touch. “It’s a great addition to the exhibition”, the student of economy Beili Hong is pleased. “Especially because it’s included in the entrance fee”, says Beili. As of now the eGuides will be handed out to interested visitors of the Nautineum. The official opening takes place on 25 May during the Dänholm-day.
