I'm brand new to the listserv but was directed by a colleague who says you are 
the folks in the know!

Our exhibit spaces are rather outdated.  One space in particular is intended to 
be a highly interactive and hands-on environment for facilitated field trip 
groups.  However, we have adapted the activities hosted in the space as many of 
the exhibit elements are no longer function or relevant to current methods of 
teaching students how to behave as historians.

We have four computer kiosks with outdated CPUs and touch screens.  We hoped to 
update these kiosks with new software, at least, that could host simply some 
text as well as images and videos from our collections.  The software would not 
need to link directly to our collections database, we would just need to be 
able to create something interactive from newly created files.

Can anyone recommend any software and/or accompanying hardware for this type of 
highly interactive space?  And of course, on a budget? :)

Thank you for your help!
