- Adobe Spark (https://spark.adobe.com, browser-based version): Adobe products are generally subscription based and Binghamton does not have an institutional subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud. But, the browser-based version of Adobe Spark can be accessed for free by anyone with an educational email account (select the option for teachers and students). Adobe Spark can be used to produce and host simple webpages, videos, and basic infographics. (sample video)

Anyone can sign up for an Omeka Classic account for individual projects. Omeka S is the institutional version.

Those who are interested in web-hosting can look into Reclaim Hosting, which has plans for academics and allows one to establish a distinct .com domain name and to install Omeka, Scalar, Wordpress, and other applications. Those who need large media files hosted for digital projects may work with Marcia Focht, Curator of Visual Resources, Department of Art History.
