Interactive Storytelling and Gaming Environments for Museums: The Interactive Storytelling Exhibition Project
Interactive storytelling and gaming technologies have great edutainment potential for engaging visitors with museum exhibitions. This paper presents the development and testing of the Interactive Storytelling Exhibition Project devised originally within the Factual and Learning Interactive Television Department of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and continued development at the University of Brighton. The project combines both interactive television storytelling and gaming technologies to immerse museum visitors with artefacts on exhibition, engaging the user into physical space using virtual stories.
