Seeking alternative models for research essays? Looking for ways to engage your students with public audiences?
Join Digital Scholarship Specialist Alicia Peaker to learn about Omeka and how you can create beautiful online exhibits of your art, videos, documents, or other collections. Omeka, sometimes referred to as “WordPress for museums,” is a free, flexible, and open source web-publishing platform for the display of library, museum, archives, and scholarly collections and exhibitions. It was created at the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University and is one of the most widely implemented digital humanities tools. This workshop will introduce you to the basics of planning a digital exhibit and get you started with your own Omeka.net digital exhibit.
Please bring your own laptop in order to participate fully.
