English abstract:
This research proposal aims at bridging some of the current trends regarding
Cultural Heritage institutionīs usage of Web based technologies. These trends
include the increased use of Social Web principles with respect to traditional
Web presences and the employment of Web3D technologies for single- or
multi-user 3D environments for entertainment and education. Seen individually,
each of these topics has already been covered by a number of different research
projects, but relatively little work has been done on finding ways to elaborate
these approaches by combining them within a common framework. The latter
can also be observed in the practical usage patterns of these technologies, being
usually limited to rather self-contained projects. Therefore, the aim is to provide
a framework for the presentation of cultural heritage artefacts in a 3D virtual
collaborative environment where visitors are able to participate using both
synchronous and asynchronous means of communication.
