In the current society, the concept of cultural heritage has been involved in an important process of evolution. It now includes ever-increasing physical and intangible aspects. ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and computer systems development has opened the possibility of knowledge being transmissible once unimaginable for example: virtual art exhibitions, 3D reconstructions of historical places, cultural heritage databases and much more. Despite this, too often this potential remains unexpressed and it still does not reach the public as it should and could.
The course aims to develop the professional education of workers and enable them to understand the problems of the sustainable promotion of Cultural Heritage. The course provides all the required skills for using in the appropriate way the digital advanced technologies in a museum system in order to facilitate the internal and external communication and evaluation process. This is the reason why the course programme includes the study of topics based above all on the development of all the main technological competences on which the professional role of heritage promoter is based.
The expert in ICT (Information Communication Technology) is a professional worker operating in the field of services to sector enterprises and cultural heritage institutions. Students will be able, at the end of the course, to draft and execute specific projects of interactive communication including staff and human resources management and object oriented planning. They will also be able to monitor and check the project coherence in terms of style, organisation quality, web and media communication strategies and materials (websites, texts, social networks, web apps, etc.).
