Preliminary context analysis

The Art + Design research team kicked off the project in November 2018. For the next four months, they conducted a preliminary analysis as part of the design-based research strategy implemented for the purposes of this investigation.

Students seemed more positive to engage in learning activities through virtual museums, in contrast to traditional classroom teaching and even physical museum sites.
