On the quest for a virtual exhibition platform

I want to use virtual exhibition for my students to showcase the artifacts they develop throughout the semester. There are some OER platforms out there we could experiment with. However, GDPR and accessibility (and well design) demand the use of institution approved software. We (students and staff) all have the Office 365 suit and some serious free cloud storage so making use of the tools available to us seemed the most obvious way to go. This ensures everyone can access and the GDPR side is covered at an institutional level, we can also make the exhibition as public or as private as we agree on in the course.

So without further ado: this is my experiment to use Sway as a sort of exhibition, importing some of my images and poems. The advantage of using Sway is also that you can embed various file formats, it has an accessibility setting. The only problem is that it seem to over-rely on linearity (vertically or horizontally oriented). So maybe a website might be the better option?
