Abstract

The internet and web technologies have radically changed the way that users interact with museum exhibits. The websites and their related services play an important role in accessibility and interaction with the multimedia content of museums. The aim of the current research is to present a heuristic evaluation of forty-seven medical and anatomy museum websites from usability experts, for the determination of the principal/key characteristics and issues towards the effective design of a museum website. For homogeneity and comparison purposes, the websites of museums with no support of English language were not included in the evaluation process. In the present paper, the methodology was structured with the assessment of the technologies and services of anatomy museum websites in mind. The results of the current statistical examination are subsequently analyzed and discussed. View Full-Text
