Introduction to Manifold, an Open Source Publishing Platform
February 8 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST| Free
Please join us for a workshop on Manifold, a Mellon-funded digital publishing platform developed by the CUNY Graduate Center, The University of Minnesota Press, and Cast Iron Coding. Learn how you can use Manifold to create beautiful, dynamic projects that can include text, images, audio, video, and social annotation. We will provide an overview of Manifold and show you how to use it to publish scholarly works, host community discussion and/or peer review through annotations and reading groups, and create custom versions of public domain course texts and Open Educational Resources (OER). The workshop will include a hands-on demonstration of how to publish your first text—either something you have written or a public domain/openly licensed text. We will also cover how to customize your project’s structure, look, and feel, and how you can participate in conversations in the margins of your texts using Manifold’s social annotation features.
