WebDevStudios created an amazing new way for people to experience the Dallas Museum of Art by using WordPress as an application framework. The free application allows members of the museum to engage with the exhibits in a whole new way; members can earn badges and points, which can be redeemed for rewards. This new way of discovering the museum was developed using the new and improved BadgeOS system, with the help of Credly.
The application provides numerous ways to interact with the system while visiting. Activity codes are available around the Museum—at programs, in the galleries, and sometimes distributed by DMA staff. When walking around the museum, visitors are able to check in at the iPad kiosk or mobile device and learn about the exhibits and earn points and badges.
