SOSx datasets can often be complex. We invented “Tours” in order to tell a
story with datasets and to help our users make tangible, understandable
connections between the animations and their lives or to simply play a list of
datasets in a specified order while your exhibit is idle (Kiosk Timeout Tour).
Tours can be scripted presentations that walk a user through the datasets using
a storyline and a learning goal. These often include text, guiding questions,
pop-up web content, videos, pictures/diagrams, and click-able place marks. For
example, see “Become a Data Expert” Tour screenshot below.
Using our new Tour Builder, you can now build your own tours! Once built, your
tours will show up in your search window (if desired).
Tour Builder arranges tasks in a timeline. Each Tour Task is added to the main
Timeline and runs in order. See how to build tours by watching our video
tutorials or by reading Introduction to Tour
