Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)

This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.

University of British Columbia Okanagan researchers try out the FVM app

A couple of researchers from the University of British Columbia Okanagan, Dr. Constance Crompton and Maggie Shirley, came to Vancouver this week to talk with us about mobile media development as well as to try out the FVM app. Here is the photo they took -- as the app prompts -- to document their arrival at Fort Vancouver. 

They are working on a collaboration with the University of Alberta, and the Devonian Botanic Garden (the Islamic Garden portion, in particular), and trying to determine ways to add mobile media to the interpretation of the garden. That sounds like a fabulous project, and we'll look forward to supporting them in whatever ways we can in the future.
