Creating a blueprint of your website before you start editing the online platform is important. See an example below:
See Constructing Gender: The Origins of Michigan’s Union and League as an example. On this site, pages include Introduction (as its homepage), Two Buildings (Page), Two Genders (Page), Two Architects (Page), Two Million Dollars (Page), and About the Site. The Browse page will be shown automatically.

According to the Omeka S User Manual, "a Resource Template is a set of pre-defined Properties, optionally with a Class, to guide Item creation and the interpretation of Properties." Resource Templates can be created based on Omeka S Classes, such as Moving Image, Oral History, Sound, Still Image, and Event.
★ Make sure that a Resource Template (or Resource Templates) and an Item Set (or Item Sets) are ready before your students upload items and create metadata.
― The instruction is available at Resource Templates on the Omeka S User Manual.
★ Important Notes ★
See below for the difference between Alternate label and Alternate comment.
Note: Contact Yayo Umetsubo (your librarian) when you would like her to create Resource Templates for your course.
In Omeka, an Item Set is one or Items which have something in common. Item Sets can be based on anything, for example, a work type (e.g., photo, oral history interview, speech), a location, or a name. Item Sets could be similar to Collections (Omeka Classic). Yet, their primary functions are connecting Items together and displaying them on a Browse page on your site.
Visit Add an item set for further information.
★ To make an Item Set connect all of your resources together under a single theme, students need to choose it when the create an Item.
See the image below for the role of Item Sets, in relation to Items.
The Resources tab of the site context menu allows you to set what Items and Item Sets available on your site's browse pages.
The Item Pool determines what automatically appears in the resource selection options on a Browse page on your site.
