meSch Post Visit Website

Introduction

The idea of allowing users to extend their visit is very popular with Museum officials at present. The meSch post-visit visualization tool was designed to explore how elements from an exhibition could be combined with information from a users visit to provide a personalized hyper visual interface. The hope being it would allow the visitor

  • to further explore the exhibition
  • be inspired to learn more about missed points of interest
  • provide them with additional related objects of interest that were not part of the exhibition for their consideration.

iStep in action

What is iStep

iStep is a web platform developed by Sheffield Hallam University as part of a larger European wide research project called Innovage. Its aims were to both promote and enable healthy, active lifestyles towards a reduction in levels of problematic obesity in increasingly aging populations. iStep stands for ‘Intergenerational Support To Encourage Physical Activity’.

The iStep tool was designed to allow a younger and an older person to form a partnerships and track their physical activity. Two people would pair up to form a dyad and compete against other pairs to complete a challenge. Users of the system could see how much activity they had done, compare their progress with other dyads teams, and work towards a series of collective goals, by logging onto the on-line iStep environment.

How does it work

The videos below illustrate each stage of using the iStep platform.
