History 402A (Dr. Cawthra): Group Projects on Omeka.net

Library instruction guide for the Fall 2023 semester of History 402A: Introduction to Public History.

Course Assignment

The HIST 402A class mapping project will be created and published using a group project site hosted on Omeka.net. Each student needs to be added to this class site, so that they can build out their assigned part of this project. You want to try to accept your site invitation before our October 28th instruction session.

If you run into any trouble, please contact your assigned library Colleen Greene through our the class Canvas course. Your class project site administrator is Colleen, and your professor will be added as well.
