Cabinet is Oxford’s new award-winning online platform for using objects and images in education. It allows digital resources (including texts, 2D images and 3D models) to be uploaded together in one place (behind Single Sign-On), where materials can be annotated, discussed and linked to other material to aid teaching and learning. The platform can be accessed through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (WebLearn or Canvas). Cabinet is enabling University staff and students to more easily integrate objects and images from the University’s collections into their teaching and learning. Cabinet makes museum collections as accessible as library materials, available for individual and collaborative study, enhanced tutorial and classroom teaching, and easier revision. Images, audio and video from the wider web can also be imported into Cabinet to complement existing Oxford teaching materials. Cabinet is also IIIF compliant, allowing easy access to millions of high-resolution images from cultural institutions worldwide, including Digital Bodleian. The platform also supports viewing and annotation of 3D models.
