EVE allows educators, students and other users to create virtual exhibitions and teaching resources from the Bill Douglas Centre's history of the moving image collection. EVE has provided streamlined, user-friendly access to all documentation on the collections, and showcases approximately 1,000 digital images to form a virtual museum display and image bank of the contents of the museum's permanent galleries. Registered users have their own collections space, to which they can add items from the 60,000 strong collections. Users can then curate and publish their own virtual exhibition. This exhibition interface supports a number of uses: lecture or seminar presentation, photo essay, or simply a personal exhibition. EVE is believed to be the UK's largest online museums collections database allowing users to build their own collection/exhibition. This paper demonstrates the completed learning environment and presents early findings from research into its use in teaching and learning.
