The Sidecar Content block is one of the more frequently used content blocks for student story map projects since it provides a lot of flexibility in design.
- In the StoryMaps builder, click (+) to add a new content block, then select Sidecar.
- Select the layout for your Sidecar block: Docked, Floating, or Slideshow. The docked format works best if you want to add more text or contextual information alongside the media in the sidecar block. The floating and slideshow blocks work better if you want to showcase media with minimal accompanying text. If you don't like the initial layout that you selected, you can change it after you add the sidecar block to your story map.
