RESOURCE: Basics of Creating a Scroll Kit Narrative

Miriam Posner (UCLA) has created a tutorial for using Scroll Kit, a simple drag-and-drop framework for creating “multimedia works in a scrolling format suitable for long-form narratives.” Posner also provides a second, advanced tutorial that concentrates on the parallax effect in Scroll Kit.

Popular with online journalism outlets, Scroll Kit provides flexibility and allows users to easily overlay images and text, and incorporate video and audio. Posner also provides some sample webpages created using Scroll Kit, such as Smithsonian Magazine’s “Oral History of the March on Washington.”
