I have created a story map journal for educational purposes, and embedded it in a website created using Google Sites. This all went smoothly, but I think the story map would be visually much better if the space available for it was wider. The embed gadget appears to have a set width and I do not know enough about web coding to change that. The story map also does not look very good in a mobile format. You cannot view the map and text at the same time, and when displaying the text, the background is slightly transparent (so you can see the map behind it), which makes everything difficult to read.
I tried developing another website using wix.com but this displays even worse. I wondered if others had a better suggestion for how to display a story map journal in a website, especially for mobile platforms. It would be really fantastic if my students could view the story maps on their phones. I have limited web design experience (and no time to learn it) so I am most interested in available templates.
