Digital Storytelling Course Overview

This course looks at the development, production, and use of digital stories. Digital storytelling has become an avenue of expression leading to new forms of social networking and a means through which storytelling is re-made for different media.

The purpose is to examine techniques for digital storytellers. It includes everything digital nomads need to know about conceptualizing, editing and producing stories for online platforms and audiences.

The capacity for digital storytelling has developed through the availability of convergent communication technologies, particularly consumer grade technologies such as those in smartphones and tablets. The availability of these technologies has meant that new skills and techniques of writing and producing are necessary which fit with computer screen technologies and other parameters of these new media forms.

Theories of narrative form, visuals, sound, music, subjectivity and identity will form part of the course with an examination of forms of collective and political engagement that develop out of the digital story.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, successful students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate developed knowledge of the principles and concepts of framing, sound, composition, visual storytelling, digital storytelling, and culture
  • Demonstrate a sense of aesthetics and skills in communicating through both static and moving images
  • Display creativity and originality in effectively developing and managing a visual story production
  • Demonstrate critical thinking around interactive digital storytelling, online media production, and the social and cultural media environment
  • Learn how to develop linear and nonlinear digital stories
