We helped the Mary MacKillop Place Museum design their exhibit and create the digital images for two modules: the application running on the Microsoft PixelSense table; and the Museum Configuration Tool to manage the content using an Azure CMS platform in the cloud.
The Microsoft Pixelsense table also connects to a television mounted on the wall enhancing the view in the event that a large group of visitors converge in the gallery. The application allows image manipulation up to 360 degrees displaying historic documents and information, delving into the finest detail of who Mary MacKillop was.

Object consultants worked with a diverse group of business and user stakeholders to trial a small number of Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) assessments. It was recognised early that user adoption would be critical to the success of the project and Object spent a substantial amount of time working with these stakeholders on the user experience supported by the application.
Object achieved a smooth migration to the new Microsoft Azure environment with minimal disruption to participating schools. This has allowed the program to continue without interruption throughout 2017 and into 2018. The development of the reporting module has enabled Sustainability Victoria to look at the program in new ways and consider policy decisions driven by access to data that was previously unavailable to stakeholders. The new reporting dashboards provide insight into the ResourceSmart Schools program and will enable Sustainability Victoria to directly align the needs of schools and to optimise its practices for school staff, students and the wider community. Object continues to work with Sustainability Victoria to enhance the functionality of the ResourceSmart Schools Program, through ongoing development to improve the value of the program to schools, and to position the system for long term growth.
