Welcome to the Project Creator Guide for DM 2.0:
  • There is also a separate help guide for project viewers here.
  • Be sure to view known issues for project editors located here.
  • This guide for project creators is currently under construction for the open-source public release of DM 2.0 later this winter, so some pages of the guide are incomplete.
  • Creating and/or editing projects on the platform (version 2.0) requires an internet connection—you cannot view, create and/or edit projects offline—and an internet web browser—we recommend either Chrome or Firefox.
  • Be aware platform functionalities for touchscreens and mobile web browsers haven't been fully tested.
  • You can use the navigation bar on the left-hand side of your screen to view specific tutorial videos and text.
