Are you interested in learning more about creating digital multimedia scholarship? The Alliance for Networking and Visual Culture out of the University of Southern California is offering a FREE series of webinars this fall to learn more about working with Scalar.
Scalar is a free, open source authoring and publishing platform that’s designed to make it easy for authors to write long-form, born-digital scholarship online. Scalar enables users to assemble media from multiple sources and juxtapose them with their own writing in a variety of ways, with minimal technical expertise required.
This trailer will introduce you to Scalar and its capabilities—for details, please visit http://scalar.usc.edu. (Final feature set subject to change.)

The “Introduction to Scalar” webinars will cover basic features of the platform: a review of existing Scalar books and a hands-on introduction to paths, tags, annotations and importing media.
