Omeka

(Omeka.net / Omeka.org) facilitates adding very detailed metadata (using Dublin Core standards) and so can be used to push students to think more deeply about questions of ontology

Omeka.org is where you go to download the software and install it on your own server. Requires some degree of technical expertise to set up and time/resource to maintain.

Omeka.net, by contrast, allows you to set up a site hosted at Omeka.net. Requires less technical expertise to set up, but it’s also somewhat less customizable in terms of add-ons you might want to use.
