OpenMi Excursions was developed by Australian Communication Exchange in partnership with the Victorian Deaf Education Institute and Werribee Open Range Zoo to create accessible learning for Deaf and hard of hearing students.
OpenMi Excursions is a smartphone application that offers interactive and accessible learning through captions and Australian Sign Language. The app has been designed to be used around the Pula Reserve Trail via Quick Response codes (QR code). Teachers are able to facilitate the excursion at the Zoo using a smartphone device to enable interaction between the student and teacher’s tablet. Students can read information, answer questions and quizzes and teachers can track their progress. The app has been designed to be used around the Pula Reserve Trail and on Safari via Quick Response codes (QR code).
How it works:
1. Borrow a Zoo phone that has the OpenMi Excursions app on it from ticket office. Please note that for security purposes you will be required to leave a form of ID (for example drivers license)
3. Enter ‘scan mode’ ready to scan QR codes at each enclosure around the Pula Reserve Trail. Please note that most QR codes are placed on the right hand side of any glass viewing window or left hand side of exhibit interpretative signage
4. On the safari bus tour you will need to use QR code booklet from ticket office on entry to the zoo
