Ports, Past and Present App Authoring Workshop

February 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Would you like to learn how to add heritage sites and other places of interest in your local area to the ‘Port Places’ app? Then join us for in-depth online training workshop led by James Louis Smith on February 7, 11am-12.30pm on how to author the app in your port town.

The ‘Port Places’ app brings life and heritage stories to ferry crossings and port towns around the Irish Sea: Dublin Port, Rosslare Harbour, Holyhead, Pembroke Dock and Fishguard. The app was developed by UCC’s Ports, Past and Present project in partnership with the University of Lancaster’s Safarnama app team, led by Deborah Sutton.

Our App experiences currently range from an atmospheric Dublin theatrical tour, to a Pembroke Dock Town Trail, Fishguard’s Last Invasion, Rosslare Harbour tour and ferry crossing experiences (downloadable for when internet is not available on a ferry journey). However, you can also add new experiences for your business, work and community. This workshop will take you through the process of creating a free publicly-accessible set of locations where your audience can follow and learn from the images, text and other media (audio, video) that you have shared. The workshop will begin with a discussion about how to prepare and plan your walk, and end with a guide to publishing your work and ideas for sharing the QR codes and links generated by the app.

For more information about the workshop and to book your place contact James: james.smith@ucc.ie
