Omeka is a web publishing platform for sharing digital collections and creating media-rich online exhibits.
If you’re new to Omeka, we recommend that you use Omeka.net. Here, you can build an Omeka website hosted for free on the Omeka.net servers. Omeka.net works well for classroom instruction, allowing each student to manage their own site independently. The institutional Omeka.net account is available to Centre College faculty, staff, students, and project collaborators. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options.
Review the Omeka.net Use Policy to determine if an institutional account is right for you.
