ArcGIS StoryMaps

ArcGIS StoryMaps is a web-based story-authoring application that allows you to easily integrate maps alongside narrative text and other multimedia content. These websites can be shared with the public or with defined groups.

You do not have to include geographical maps in your story, but the platform seamlessly integrates with ESRI’s other ArcGIS platforms, including ArcGIS Online and Survey123.

The Panopto logo.


Panopto is a video and audio storage service that allows you to upload, edit, store and share video and audio files with varying levels of privacy settings. Panopto can also be a powerful tool to use for video lecture and video annotation. All Middlebury faculty, staff and students have access to Panopto.
