Mukurtu Mobile allows users to add stories to Mukurtu CMS, a digital heritage content management system designed with indigenous communities digital heritage needs in mind.
With Mukurtu Mobile you can create stories on-the-go, upload media to your own Mukurtu powered community archive, and define cultural and sharing protocols to ensure your content is shared your way.
★ Who uses this app?
Mukurtu CMS is free and open source software supporting a worldwide community of users and organizations. Mukurtu CMS users are a dynamic group of indigenous communities, archivists, librarians, curators, researchers and software developers, who are keen on saving and sharing digital heritage - pictures, documents, videos, reference materials, audio clips, museum collections - and using cultural protocols developed by each community to manage their collections safely.
★ Mukurtu Mobile
Mukurtu Mobile is the fastest, easiest way to capture events and stories when you are on-the-go. Stories can be collected offline and uploaded later when you have internet access. Add one or many photos to a story and each story can be geo-located automatically (you have control). Once uploaded, your content will be available automatically on your own Mukurtu CMS powered site, where you can make links to other digital heritage items, add rich metadata, and share with your community on your own terms. Mobile needs to be enabled on your Mukurtu site before you can start using the app. Please email us at email@example.com if you need help.
