Introduction to Manifold Scholarship
February 9, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST| Free
Please join the GC Digital Initiatives for this workshop on Manifold Scholarship, a Mellon-funded digital publishing platform developed by the CUNY Graduate Center, The University of Minnesota Press, and Cast Iron Coding. Learn about how Manifold allows you to create beautiful, dynamic projects that can include text, images, video, embedded resources, and social annotation. We will provide an overview of Manifold and demonstrate how faculty, students and staff can use Manifold to publish scholarly works, host community discussion and/ or peer review through annotations and reading groups, and create custom edited versions of public domain course texts and OER. The presentation will include a hands-on demonstration of how to publish your first text—either something you have written or a public domain or 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.
