Live Webinar: AASLH Conversations: Building a No-Cost Virtual Tour of Museums and Historic Sites with Clio
- Registration Closed
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented crisis in our local communities, country, and world. Many are seeking answers and guidance during this time, and AASLH has been listening to the concerns from the history community. In response, we are offering more online content including the new AASLH Conversations webinar series. While no one has all the answers, we hope these topic-focused conversations will provide a space to share ideas to help us all keep moving forward.
We know many organizations are facing financial strain due to the pandemic, so we developed AASLH Conversations with that in mind. We have drastically reduced the registration fee and are also providing a special promo code to waive the registration fee completely.
This conversation has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
In this webinar, David Trowbridge (Marshall University/Clio app) will discuss how—and why—history institutions can build virtual tours at no cost using the Clio app. With a data base of more than 30,000 entries and more than 700 walking tours, Clio—a completely free app developed with support from NEH and others—already guides thousands of people to nearby history and culture each day. The app’s new features, developed in response to the pandemic, allow history organizations to build a virtual tour in about a day without cost or any special equipment! This conversation will focus on how institutions can use these features to develop a virtual tour, as well as a broader discussion of what works, what might be possible, and what kinds of features and functions you would like to see included in the app. Join us for an exciting conversation about how you can use the Clio app to promote and share the work your institution is doing.
