A prototype of a new user interface and four mobile tours charting the history of West Virginia using the digital platform Clio.

With a prototype level grant, Marshall University will design, test, and make freely available a new authoring platform within Clio that will allow scholars and organizations to create walking tours and digital heritage trails that guide users to their next location while they listen to location-aware audio and browse related text and media. Our team will also build features requested by humanities organizations and the public that will enhance Clio a free website and mobile application that connects the public to humanities scholarship related to nearby historical and cultural sites. Our team will work with community partners to create model tours, user guides, and instructional videos to assist similar organizations to utilize the new platform. Members of the team will also design requested resources and features for K-12 educators and features that will provide greater accessibility for the vision impaired.
