Sid Richardson Museum

Dusty Days and Starry Nights of Cowboys and Cattle Barons

Based on artworks in the collection that reference the cattle industry, this piece includes content from the distance learning and teacher in-service training programs about the Edward Bohlin saddle, Dusty Days and Starry Nights: Cowboys and Cattle Barons from the Chisholm Trail to Thistle Hill. The Sid Richardson Museum created educational resources available to a broader audience through development of content by including new video, audio, visual components and utilizing additional technology outlets. An iPad mobile handheld device was the focus of a number of experiments with the technology in fall 2010 and spring of 2011.

A report describing the research and functionality of their iPad content is available.
