Digital Storytelling

Digital storytelling has become a major phenomenon in the world of internet. Storytelling is a form of art done on the internet, people use their imagination to create a story by using pictures, videos, music, and more. There are many kinds of digital storytelling, there is the video, design, writing digital storytelling and many more.
I will try to give an idea about the video and the design digital storytelling. The video digital storytelling basically uses videos to tell a story while the design digital storytelling depends more on graphical design and pictures to express the idea in a creative way.

Here are some tips about how to manage a digital storytelling project. And here is a blog that is using digital storytelling as advertisement. And this is another blog that gives a bit more details about digital storytelling and its types.
We can see there are many people interested is this area recently, and I would suggest people to try and participate in such projects because they are interesting and there are no limitations as long as we have imagination.

  1. Thanks for this concise summary and description of digital storytelling. What you've written combined with what appears in the sites you've linked to provide a good overview that can help people get up to speed on what we're trying to do in this class.

    In the future, I'd like you to use more descriptive text blurbs for your hyperlinks instead of "here" or "this."

    Do you think the three sites you've linked to are blogs. I'm sure one of them is - not so sure about the other two.

  2. Thank you for your comment, I will pay more attention on the hyperlinks next time, you are right, the other two are a bit shorter articles maybe they are not blogs, but I thought they would be useful to give an idea about storytelling.
