How Can I Get Started?

Perhaps the most obvious way to get started is to first watch the video cited earlier, which provides a nice visual overview of the concepts just discussed.  Then go to the main Scalar page, sign up for an account, and browse over the User's Guide.

The ANVC is also hosting regular sets of Webinars, dedicated to beginning, intermediate, and advanced Scalar skills.

The path that follows contains a series of handouts that present the basic skills students in our Department might need to do their assignments.  Typically, so far, we're asking students to use Scalar as a way of thinking critically about what media sources–video, sound, image–might tell us about history.  So the path here is designed to help a student create a project, import media into it, curate that media by adding annotations and other commentary, and then write about it.

You can read these handouts online, or download and print them as you see fit.
