Owning Your Omeka Workshop Series: Workshop 3 - Making Mobile Tours with Curatescape and Omeka

Workshop 3 - Making Mobile Tours with Curatescape and Omeka


In this 2-hour workshop learners will gain experience with Curatescape, an Omeka plugins and themes suite that allows you to add images, audio, videos, and text connected to geographic locations. Together we'll create a digital exhibit with location-based stories and develop an interactive mobile tour.

Created by Cleveland State University's Center for Public History and Digital Humanities., Curatescape is web and mobile app framework for publishing location-based content as mobile tours. It is great technical solution to emphasize storytelling from the historical to the environmental, to the literacy to the architectural to build meaning evoking context, place, or identity contextualized through text, image, sound, and video that combines writing and special collections, archives, and museum objects.

We encourage attendees to have attended the first and second workshops in this workshop series. However, all learners of all levels of technicial experience are encouraged to attend!

About the Workshop Series

UO Libraries presents a three-part workshop series to learn how to create your own Omeka website from start to finish!

Omeka is an open-source web publishing platform ideal for sharing digital collections and curating online exhibits. Academics, museum professionals, and librarians around the world use the platform because it allows users to conceptualize and build multimedia exhibits.

We'll be using Reclaim Hosting, a website hosting platform that allows anyone to purchase web server space to host web applications like Omeka, Wordpress, Scalar, Mukurtu, Grav, and a whole bunch of other platforms to support your digital projects.

The goal of this workshop series is for learners to:

  • Understand the basics of working with Reclaim Hosting and a Fiile Transfer Protocol Client
  • Install and work with Omeka themes and plugins using Reclaim Hosting and FTP
  • Getting to know Curatescape, a mobile-friendly geospatial location storytelling theme and plugin suite used to make tours and tell location-based stories
