Manifold in the Classroom: Digital Publishing for Open Pedagogy

Expanding the technical infrastructure in the Manifold digital publishing platform to enable the creation and publication of free open educational resources in the humanities.

This application requests a Level III Digital Humanities Advancement Grant to fund the addition of student-focused features to Manifold, an open-access publishing platform. Though Manifold was originally designed for use by university presses, an increasing number of users are integrating Manifold into the classroom. We will use the Advancement Grant to add teaching-specific features to Manifold that will allow it to function as an Open Educational Resource (OER) platform. With these new features, instructors can use Manifold to build free, high-quality, dynamic humanities instructional materials that engage students with multimedia-enriched texts, support social annotation, and help remove the barrier of high textbook costs. With the support of this grant, Manifold will become as powerful a tool for the classroom as it has been for scholarly publishers.
