My Digital Labor, Urban Space, and Materiality class will be using the drag-and-drop framework Scroll Kit to create multimedia “device narratives.” Here’s the tutorial I’ve created to teach them to use Scroll Kit. You’re welcome to download these instructions as a PDF or as a Word document, in case you’d like to modify them.
This is my first Scroll Kit tutorial; the second covers the parallax effect.
With Scroll Kit, you can create multimedia works in a scrolling format suitable for long-form narratives. It’s easy to drag and drop elements to create interesting effects. Your project will have a unique Scroll Kit URL, so you can share your project widely (or you can export the code).
Some examples of projects created with Scroll Kit:
- “Deep Sea Cowboys” (Epic Magazine)
- “An Oral History of the March on Washington” (Smithsonian Magazine)
- “Brooklyn Took It” (Contently)
