Consider how the online gallery/exhibition you visited is arranged and organized: is gallery/exhibition organized geographically? Chronologically? Thematically? Other ways? Think about the exhibition organization (curation) since that is a key to communicating and understanding a body of knowledge.

What does the arrangement do to help teach the main points the exhibition is trying to make?
