Virtuální muzeum a nové možnosti vzdělávání
Cybermuseum and new opportunities in education
Languages of publication
Since the beginning, museums are institutions that closely links the development of research, science, human learning and education. Information and communication technology facilitates the development of the modern museum. By means of this technology, cybermuseums are formed that are independent of the existing space; they reside in the cyberspace and offer new possibilities of museum communication and education for general public. A necessary condition for the integration of museums and other institutions preserving cultural heritage is the digitalization process of cultural objects. The understanding of this process is very important for formal, non-formal and informal education. Virtual museums are based on scientifically and aesthetically plausible virtual reality. The visitors communicate with such computer-generated virtual reality and thus gain new experience that enhances the learning processes.
