This week we searched for plugins to allow us to embed the 3D laser scans in our Omeka website. The only plugin we found required the browser to be able to support it, so we’re going to continue to search for plugins and use the SketchFab website to host the scans if necessary. Fortunately, SketchFab is free and the scans would remain the propert of the James Monroe Museum.
Dr. McClurken also asked our group to consider ways to expand the scope of our project. After consulting with the museum, we decided to make short videos of the curator talking about the objects we scan. We plan on keeping the videos basic with a very brief introduction to the museum, object, and curator before cutting to the curator discussing the object. The video will end with links to the museum’s website and our project website.
