What can I do with Scalar?
Scalar is a digital publication platform created by the Alliance for Networking Visual Cultures that allows you to create your own digital books composed of text, images, audio, and video. Plus, you can have students collaboratively annotate your publications with an application called Hypothes.is, which is integrated with Scalar.
