The present “Digital Curator Mapping & Design Report” comprises the DCbox partners countries’ reports on two issues, the digital transformation of museum and the educational pathways to qualify as Digital Curator.
The two fold analysis provides a sound base for identifying the main path that has to be developed as strategic for training the next generation of Digital Curators.
This report focuses on the Mediterranean arena, however, in order to gather successful examples all over Europe, excellence stories have been collected and integrated in the final conclusion remarks.
This report is intended to serve as white paper for identifying the professional profile of a Digital Curator and to lay the foundations for a theoretical and practice-based framework of creating a training profile for a Digital Curator.
The online course “Supporting the Digital Transformation of Museums. The DCBox approach”, produced within the DCBox project with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, aims to encourage the competence building of museums curators and students interested in cultural heritage related careers in the field of digital transformation. Here you can find the course Instrucional Design and its Syllabus.
The document “Virtual educators and co-creation toolbox: Definition on platform requirements” discusses the pre-screening of Learning Management Systems (LMS) for the creation of the online modules. The evaluation of available platforms, web browsers compatibility, and content and subscription management tools was carried out to determine the best compromise. Moodle was considered the best solution due to its robust and integrated system, personalized learning environments, and various features such as easy access, content uploading, quizzes, and activities.
The focus of the document is also on the content structure of the online course, including its organization, multimedia components, and roles of the involved parties. It also provides an example of an area structure that could be implemented within the learning platform. By the present deliverable, DC Box partnership has a plan for the platform’s content structure and the tools required to deliver an engaging and interactive learning experience for the students piloting the course but also for other possible users.
