Dr. Katy Barber and her Intro to Public History class from Portland State University visited Fort Vancouver recently, and, as part of the program, the students had a chance to hear about the FVM project, which included a short demo. Here's a pic of all of us afterward (I'm on the far right; Chief Ranger Greg Shine is just one person over, to my right, in the hat):
The response of the class to the FVM project was so positive that we now are talking about bringing the group back for a longer demo and creating more partnerships between PSU and WSU Vancouver related to mobile means of interpreting public history.

Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)
This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.
