From non-linear storytelling to rich, scholarly annotations, this workshop will encourage new ways of thinking about writing in digital environments. Using a web application called Scalar, you will begin to craft a media-rich digital narrative. Scalar is a free, open source authoring and publishing platform that’s designed to make it easy for authors to assemble media from multiple sources and juxtapose them with their own writing in a variety of ways, including via video and audio annotations.
Requirements: Scalar is browser-based, so all participants need is a laptop, an internet connection, and a browser (ideally other than IE).
