About this event

Testing and co-designing prototypes for museums' inclusive mechanical and digital interactives and tactile experiences is the smart thing to do. But how can museums conduct hands-on sessions during a pandemic when it's not safe for the test facilitators and the reviewers to be in the same room?

In this webcast, IHCD and Access Smithsonian staff along with participating user/experts with disabilities will discuss their ongoing collaborative experiment to conduct effective testing despite Covid-19 restrictions of social distancing and closed museums. Spoiler alert: The team found that much of the remote testing provides better results than testing done in person!

Closed captioning will be provided.
