Venice 2014 online exhibit

The spring 2014 Venice seminar is learning Omeka for our online exhibit. Gradually, the site is developing. There’s a learning curve for everyone. Omeka is very different from the umwblogs/wordpress system used in the past. Other than being “online,” there isn’t much to carry over from earlier experiences.

The class is hoping to use the design format of the exhibit, “Some were neighbors,” from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. We’ll see if this is possible.

Here is a list of online exhibits we recently reviewed:

    The online exhibit for the US Holocaust Museum was absolutely amazing! I loved being able to do the different interactions and I enjoyed having the ability to look at journals like Rosa Marx, who was the only Jewish student in her classroom.
