This course introduces the Oxford Community Collection Model. The model combines online crowdsourcing with audience engagement activities to create a collection of stories and digital objects (images, audio, text, etc). It has been successfully used for projects such as the Great War Archive, Woruldhord, Europeana1914-1918 and Europeana1989. In the course, you will learn about the model and how to implement it for your community collection. You will get an opportunity to set up your own collection platform and discuss how to engage your community.
