Introduction to ArcGIS Online & StoryMaps

This one-day training introduces students to the basics of creating engaging and interactive maps online using free tools from Esri's ArcGIS Online website. For communities, researchers, and outreach educators, a web map is a powerful tool for soliciting input, sharing information, and engaging stakeholders. This two-part workshop will introduce you to ArcGIS Online in the morning, and story maps, Esri's slick format for sharing maps AND descriptive text and media, in the afternoon.
