So, it seems a shame to have worked so hard to complete all of the assignments in this course and not share my final project in one last post.
The John Philip Sousa Project
I built my project on the Omeka platform. I do not know if the product features were limited due to using the "basic" free plan. The themes were limited at this level, so I hope that extends to other features as well. I used several plug-ins to add areas and features to the project: Simple Page, COinS, Docs Viewers, and LC Suggest.
As a graphic designer, I probably know just enough to cause difficulties with the control panel, which is clearly built for the novice. I was able to work around many of the limitations by using html. But even with mark-up, I was still unable to place <divs> such as <iframe> for my animated timeline sequence. Also, Omeka does not allow audio or video files anywhere on the site. I did not want to omit the audio and video files I found so I used external links.
Please take a moment to view my JPS Project. I would appreciate your comments.
