Digital Publishing: Multimodal Storytelling
This workshop will provide an overview of common options for publishing sound and video on the Web, focusing on the benefits of various platforms, licensing and rights issues, accessibility issues to consider, and methods of integrating multiple media into research publications. Platforms and tools will include Vimeo, YouTube, SoundCloud, and, for presenting materials in an interactive timeline, Sway and Tableau story feature. Participants will be able to match their digital research with appropriate platforms for public dissemination and will realize the strengths, limitations, and legal issues of various platforms.
Format: This two-hour workshop is meant to promote and engage discussion around students’ specific digital publishing concerns. Consequently, attendance is capped at 15 students, and participants will be asked to share their specific interests and needs ahead of time, to help ensure that presentation examples and discussion points are sufficiently relevant. Sessions will provide numerous examples (projects and tools) to help illustrate key points.
