Project Profile:

Omeka Gym

Archived Project

Website: https://omekagym.omeka.net/

Description: Omeka Gym provides not only tutorials but an infrastructure for hands-on learning. Using a small digital collection based on a medieval manuscript (depictions of angels in British Library MS Add. 42555), Omeka Gym presents a set of “recipes,” tutorials, sample data, and structured, scaffolded exercises and assignments tailored specifically to the creation of arguments about literary narratives. By October 2015, instructors will be able to freely download and customize all these recipes, tutorials, exercises, and datasets. Omeka Gym is thus one half of a blended learning course, supporting both teaching and learning with Omeka, especially within literature classrooms.
