Virtual Museum of the Pacific

"The Virtual Museum of the Pacific (VMP) is an experimental social media platform that is developed in collaboration between the Australian Museum and the University of Wollongong. The VMP contains 427 objects from the Australian Museum's Pacific cultural collections. Users can explore, tag and annotate these objects with rich media. In this video, we introduce its background, motivations and user experience, and also lead into its future research direction and technology platform."
The Australian Museum is working with the OLPC Oceania Technical Working Group and other partners to develop the user community for the VMP among Pacific children and communities who can access the VMP with an XO laptop.
