It also explores the role of technology in disseminating information in a way that reaches a wider public . Workshops, games, 3D environments are all tools in the new and diverse archivist kit. The relationship between the public and digital content is among the core issues the project works on. In its new phase, the project attempts to re-use digital content from the Cultural Heritage sector, mainly deriving from Europeana and other libraries to reach a wider audience through knowledge testing games.
