I gave an introduction and a quick demo of the Fort Vancouver Mobile app to Dr. Katy Barber and her Intro to Public History class from Portland State University a couple of weeks ago. The group was really interested in the project and wanted to hear more, so I was invited back to Fort Vancouver today and gave a full demo, despite the rain and wind. During the demo, the app asks the user to take a photo at the site, so I used that opportunity to snap this image of a dedicated group of Pacific Northwest students, braving the weather, to get a look at the FVM app, how it worked, and what it might mean for historical interpretation of the future:

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.
