Pilot: giving the building a voice >> James Hehir

Thanks to all for the feedback on a previous iteration, we are now on iteration two, and have posted this up to see if it is scanned. I'll post again in a few weeks.

We've been piloting the idea of trying to give buildings around the campus a voice. The intention is to enable people (staff, students and the general public) to find out what is going on in our buildings around campus. This information will consist of short interview (3 minute videos) with a person from estates who will give the general background. The imagery will be around a number of still shots of tasks and activities being undertaken in the building. The material will be made available through a number of routes, including the Elevate QR Code Tour Generator, and our emerging UCS Augmented Reality Layar. The publication route assumes it will be accessed via a mobile device. However, there is some scope for accessing it on large screens. The model is to publish within our unlisted YouTube channel.

A key part of the feedback from iteration one, was the need to make it more professional given the likely (potential) audiences. For instance, a tighter script, better quality audio and more effective images.

The QR Code is laminated and posted on the building for iteration two is displayed below. There is some work we need to complete around the disclaimer.
