Abstract

Is is quite obvious that museum visitors as well as exhibition or event participants really make profit of the information available. Although most od the information guides are currently paper-based, this solution is not the more appropriate one, as these guides are not reusable ance the exhibition is over. Moreover, they are not sustainable or environmental-friendly due to the use of paper. MULTIPOD aims at implementing a system that allows visitors to design their own multimedia guide for the visit, with personalized contents about the artworks that best fit his/her preferences using their personal mobile device. The system allows downloading the multimedia contents to the devices of the user connecting to a Web URL or using QR codes availables at the exhibition. MULTIPOD has been validated in a Technology Museum in the Basque Country.
