The Alliance for Networking Visual Culture sent the following email on September 16, 2013.

Scalar Webinars: Announcing Our Fall Schedule

To follow up on our recent Beta release, the Scalar development team will be offering a series of free online webinars this Fall.

Our “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. Our “Intermediate Scalar” webinars will delve into more advanced topics including the effective use of visualizations, annotating with media and a primer on customizing appearances in Scalar. Finally, one advanced webinar will cover Scalar’s RDF-based API as well as Scalar’s theme engine for programmers who wish to utilize the platform’s internal components when creating interfaces.

Our Fall schedule will include five dates:

  • Introduction to Scalar  – September 26, 10am-12pm (PST)
  • Intermediate Scalar – October  17,  10am-12pm (PST)
  • Introduction to Scalar – November 14, 4pm-6pm  (PST)
  • Advanced Scalar/API – November 21, 10am-12pm (PST)
  • Intermediate Scalar – December 12, 4pm-6pm  (PST)

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.
