- Digital tools that provide a level of interactivity or visualization to your project, such as timelines, maps, charts and graphs, etc.
- Context, narrative, and interpretation about different aspects of your research question.
- Digital assets such as images, audio, and video, and their accompanying metadata, as necessary.
- A Sources page or section (your bibliography).
- An About page or section that provides:
- A short biography.
- A reflective section that talks about why you chose your research question and the future of your project (your research journal should help inspire this section).
