BootCamp Workshop 1: Introduction to Omeka
Introduction to Omeka: Uses, Capabilities and Limitations
- What is Omeka?
- Sample projects
- Comparisons with other CMS
- Plug-ins, extensions and the Omeka community
Getting Started with Omeka
- Installation and hosting
- The Omeka.net alternative
- Working with the Admin dashboard

If there’s time and interest, we can also talk a bit about customizing themes for non-coders.
This is a tentative outline only, of course!
In preparation for the BootCamp session, we suggest that everyone register for a basic account on Omeka.net to play with during the session.
