Overview

This course assists students with new and emerging platforms like video games, virtual reality and Internet/mobile apps by exploring how storytelling allows us to make connections. Students will learn fundamental concepts related to interactive storytelling, such as the structure of interactive digital narratives from multiple genres, and the practical applications of utilizing storytelling techniques.

Course Prerequisites

None, however, previous experience in networking, OS administration or virtualization is an asset.

Topics/Learning Objectives

This course looks at the development, production, and use of digital stories. Digital stories are used in social media, networking, VR, AR and other emerging technologies. This storytelling course will explore convergent communication technologies, particularly consumer grade technologies such as those in smart phones and tablets. The widespread use of these technologies means that new writing and producing skills and techniques are necessary to  adapt to computer screen conventions and other parameters of these new media forms.

The course has a practical component, which will encourage the production of new forms of narrative through exercises and the use of skills developed in class.

Upon successful completion of this course, students should 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.
  • Demonstrate 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.
  • Develop linear and nonlinear digital stories.

Who Will Benefit From The Course

This course provides additional, supplemental training for those already in careers working with development, production, and use of digital stories.
