Marvel - the presentation tools

arcipedia® gets straight to the point. The landing page already offers several tools and editorial components to ensure the eye-catching presentation of your objects, content and topics. 

Here this allows you to make your mark and emphasise your main points. Guide your visitors through your prepared content. arcipedia® can be adapted to your target audience. The user interface could not be easier, but meanwhile also offers valuable opportunities for media representatives and historians.

 

<p>The landingpage offers various ways to present your extensive history.</p>

1.  Slide show

The slide show, positioned front and centre on the landing page, is the absolute eye-catcher. Choose any number of significant images to circle through at a particular interval. This function can also be controlled manually by clicking on an arrow symbol. A concise caption adds additional information to every image.

2. Topboxes

Divided into three predefined categories (texts, in our example called information material, virtual tours and research), three smaller boxes positioned below the slide show are the basis of your approach to arcipedia®. Their categories are variable and can be named appropriately and modified according to your target audience. An integrated link leads the user to the according pages. Left of the top boxes you find space for a small introductory or welcome message. No matter if it's a classic collection of articles or a digital exhibition - the top boxes provide a function which offers the opportunity to edit specific content. Choose your preferred archive or combined concept and present your content according to your communication concept.

  • Texts

    The pre-defined category texts offers space for background stories. Included content can be scientific in nature and present your users with cross-topic information or essays about your company, organisation or museum without being linked to specific archived object.
    With arcipedia®, you choose which stories you want to tell in detail. After loading the top box texts, users are presented with an overview of the provided material. This overview is gathered automatically.
    Every article includes a short extract and can be accessed by clicking read more. The detailed view of an article can also be combined with pdf, image or sound files for download purposed as well as internal links.

     
  • Virtual tours

    The predefined category virtual tours contains a compact sequence of images on certain topics. The editorial format allows a special form of storytelling, with content besides the conventional milestone gallery and less official in nature (but still showing aspects of the development of your company, museum or organisation). This is how it works: after accessing the category virtual tours, the user gets an overview of all available exhibitions, including a short description. A preview picture (always the first image of the tour) serves as a teaser and raises interest regarding the rest of the digital exhibits in your museum 2.0.

3. Gallery

The gallery is another fundamental part of the landing page. Show the success story of your company, museum or organisation in as many chronological steps as you want by creating milestones consisting of pictures, dates and short texts. Of course this flexible tool can also be adapted to fit your individual requirements and showcase different content. Instead of milestones, feel free to show your products or introduce important club members or employees.  Every image used in the gallery is saved in the database and can be viewed with just a few clicks. The gallery module is in-built to use: the image you click on is enlarged and opened in the detailed, easy-to-use lightbox mode.
