Scalar is a free authoring and publishing platform designed for presenting digital scholarship online in alternative, engaging, and collaborative ways. Scalar support easy media integration, and includes a range of annotation, timeline, mapping, and other visualization tools.
Workshop participants will have an opportunity to work hands-on with Scalar, and CDSC staff will guide a discussion for planning and working with Scalar in your classroom, and as a tool for presenting your digital scholarship. Participants are encouraged to bring possible project ideas to share with the group, and can bring media or content to work with if desired.
Two examples of Scalar sites are In the Shadow of Sludge:the Legacy of Coal Waste in Appalachia, and Sailing the British Empire: The Voyages of The Clarence, 1858-73.
