"If mobile technology is something you're researching or working on, our Museum App Builder 2.0 has just launched! It's a do-it-yourself app publisher that allows museums and historic sites to build a mobile app very quickly and affordably - without any technical knowledge.
Here is a quick 60sec video: www.toursphere.com/video
We also publish a blog on mobile technology in museums, with posts from thought-leaders around the museum world and from our own staff. You can read the blog or participate in the conversation at http://blog.toursphere.com/
We are continuing to build out the platform to make it the best mobile solution for museums, so if you have any questions or want to learn more, drop us a note."
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
