Manifold Scholarship invites CUNY teachers to learn how to publish open educational resources and materials on Manifold, a digital platform for scholarly publishing. Participants will learn how to turn a Google Doc into a polished publication or create a mobile-friendly version of a public domain text.

Manifold Digital Fellow Jojo Karlin will lead a quick intro on putting projects onto the free, open-source CUNY instance of Manifold ( ) so that teachers can create common texts where they and their students can collaboratively highlight and annotate their readings. Check out titles already available: The Narrative Life of Frederick Douglass, Pride and Prejudice, The Scarlet Letter, or the Futures Initiative’s Structuring Equality and the Teaching and Learning Center’s Teach@CUNY Handbook.


When: Thursday, November 15th at 6:30pm

Where: Room 5307

Who: Faculty and Staff and Students interested in making online, annotatable books — no experience necessary.
