Silliman Leads Development of AUDRN Virtual Museum
A team from the College of Computer Studies (CCS) took the lead in setting up the Virtual Museum of the Asian University Digital Resource Network (AUDRN), making available an online listing of museums, artifacts and other materials of great cultural and historical value to the Philippines.
The Virtual Museum currently showcases eight museums either hosted in the AUDRN’s partner universities or located in areas where there is a partner institution. It was established on a grant from the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia. Four of the universities with museums featured on the site are Angeles University, Fr. Saturnino Urios University, Miriam College and Silliman University.
AUDRN is an educational network of 21 academic institutions in the Philippines that serves as a collaborative hub to promote the (re)discovery and use of local knowledge in higher education and expand 21st century digital and critical literacy through capacity-building initiatives.
Commissioned to oversee the development of the site was CCS Dean Dr. Dave E. Marcial, one of the pioneering members of AUDRN.
