You have all the content—objects, costumes, images, documents. Maybe you've digitized some things, or you've taken photos or videos with cell phones, iPads, or cameras. Now what? How do you make an online exhibit from all this digital stuff you've gathered? Three panelists will walk you through how-to steps and share tips from their experiences using different platforms such as Omeka, PowerPoint with audio recordings, and YouTube videos. You'll learn how you can create an engaging virtual exhibit experience for your online visitors. There will be time for questions and to share other virtual exhibit tips.
This workshop is offered in collaboration with Connecticut Humanities and supports work in the collections, interpretation, audience, and management phases of AASLH's STEPS program. For more information about STEPS-CT, please visit our website.
