Abstract


  • This paper reports in research conducted in two museums in Australia on the beliefs

    and pedagogies that influenced the design and development of educational materials on

    museum websites, both for materials that explicitly accompanied and explained an exhibition,

    as well as additional educational resources related to the topics presented. The paper describes

    key themes emerging from the research including the perceived usefulness of exhibition-related

    websites, how the website links explicitly to curricula, beliefs on how people learn from

    museums and the role of websites.
