Sochi 2014 interactive graphic. This is a test, only a test.
I am trying to teach my students how to create an interactive graphic that includes, audio, video, text, photo galleries and supposedly Twitter should work. Everything I’m doing has to be made public or I can’t see how it’s working, so that means you get to see the errors too. Bear with me.
I’ve spent SIX hours on this so far. I had a list of things to do, but was determined to have an “OK” understanding on this to share with class tomorrow. Twitter code isn’t working and I’m trying to figure out the solution. In the meantime, it’s nice to know that you have to have a video that allows you to embed before it will post. It appears my NYT, TeamUSA.org, CNN and USA Today links are working. Plus, I want the graphic to be bigger on the blog. Give me some time to work it out. Sorry it’s not complete. Anyhoo -
HOW TO USE:
This graphic is a timeline. The top part is interactive media assets. The bottom part is a timeline that will show highlights like a traditional timeline.
There will be an arrow on the left-right sides of the graphic. Click on that to have the slideshow scroll. Click on the individual links to see the content I’ve collected. I will keep updating to make it more professional. Keep checking. - Thanks, Al
