The Queens College Center for Teaching & Learning presents An Introduction to Manifold led by Krystyna Michael, Graduate Center.
This presentation introduces Manifold, an intuitive, collaborative, open-source platform for scholarly publishing. Using Manifold, instructors can publish dynamic course editions of public domain texts and open educational resources along with supplementary notes, files, images, videos, interactive content, or other resources in a single project, and it supports collaborative annotations, so you and your students can “meet” in the margins of your texts. Participants will learn about Manifold, review model uses of Manifold across CUNY, and receive information about how to get started publishing on the platform.
We will also discuss how the development of Manifold at the Graduate Center is part of an initiative to build open infrastructure at CUNY that supports open digital pedagogy. Open Digital Pedagogy often uses Open Educational Resources (OER) and connects the classroom to the outside world through teaching practices that harness free and open digital tools to facilitate active and networked learning.
Krystyna Michael is an Open Educational Technologist at the Graduate Center supporting faculty use of the teaching platforms Manifold and the CUNY Academic Commons across all the CUNY campuses.
