Omeka Basics Workshop

Omeka Basics Workshop

This 3-hour workshop will be an introduction to using Omeka for digital scholarship projects and exhibits. Participants will learn the basics of Omeka terminology, as well as how to create metadata, upload items, manage multiple users, and use themes and plugins. In addition, participants will explore copyright for content and hosting options for Omeka. We will spend 2 hours exploring Omeka and have 1 hour of optional work time for attendees who want to start a new project or get help on an existing one. As we get closer to the workshop, instructors will be in touch with what you might want to have available to start or work on a project. Following the workshop, participants will have started a project and have access to a toolkit for continued support.

Note: We will be offering this workshop in a hybrid mode. You may attend in-person in Torgersen Hall  or online via Zoom. 

If you are an individual with a disability and desire an accommodation, welcome! Please email kadietz@vt.edu at least 10 days prior to the event.
