I made a Story Map about Epicurus for my Introduction to Philosophy class! See blog post here about how I created it as part of a Creative Commons certificate course I'm taking:

Here's a direct link to the story map:

@chendricks Thanks for this post and explanation! Your map looks great. I did not know that this tool exists and have never thought of using maps to tell stories this way.

@xldrkp I hadn't thought of it either! The tool isn't really designed for what I used it for (I wasn't really using maps much) but it works for that. And there are so many other interesting things one can do if one looks at the examples on the site!

Scholar Social

Federated microblogging for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
