Getting Online with Omeka.net

The signup process for Omeka.net can present a few small challenges due to user’s browser choice and email client. To attempt to streamline and troubleshoot this process this page should show you what you should see at each stage of the process.

Your email address has been submitted to omeka.net and you should receive an email from the Omeka.net server asking you to click a link to complete the on boarding process:

Invite Email
When you click on the link you will be taken to the Omeka.net signup page. You will see services are offered for a variety of subscription costs. You however are participating in a workshop and only need signup for the free plan to use our hosted instance.

Look for the box/button at the bottom of the page indicating ‘Sign up for Free’.

Note: at the very last step you should see a ‘Captcha’ asking you to input the numerals or letters displayed in the small image. Please do so, agree to the terms and conditions and click the ‘Sign Up’ Button.
