Pathfinders – Experience of early digital literature


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. Scalar can also be used to assemble and annotate video content, and combine in with text to create a rich media document. (Source)
