While synchronisation will be ensured at the management level (WP1), each pilot will comprise different phases: set-up of the infrastructure and instantiation of the platform components; development of the end-user applications used in the pilots using the features and tools provided by the platform; experimental setup including recruiting of visitors and beta-users; controlled experimental phase supervised by technological partners (computer scientists); and uncontrolled experimental phase supervised by historians and humanities scientists.
The controlled phase will provide feedback from the visitors (directly through questionnaires and indirectly through their interactions with the apps), which will be used to refine the requirements, models and digital content (WP2), the technological artefacts (WP3), and to enhance the CrossCult platform. The uncontrolled experiments will allow to assess the impact of our approach and supporting platform.
WP5's main objectives are:
- to develop the end-user application for each pilot.
- to implement, set up and run the pilots.
- to evaluate the pilots and the Return on Experience of the end users.
