New Visual Storytelling Tool: Storyplanet Lets Users Package Content Into Interactive Experiences

New Visual Storytelling Tool: Storyplanet Lets Users Package Content Into Interactive Experiences | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article by Journalism.co.uk:

"The platform enables users – such as journalists and photographers – to build interactive and visually captivating packages of content, which can then be embedded within a news site.

 

We discussed the concept with founder Bjarke Myrthu, who describes Storyplanet as "a packaging or a wrapping or an interface tool", which journalists can use to bring together collections of their work in a great user experience.
"So if you have a bunch of different media types, some text, some video, some photos, you can create a really nice package out of it that people can navigate in different ways," Myrthu added.

 

Each story is built on a grid, which users can then add "tiles" to, which effectively form each page of the story, and appear like slides in a presentation.
The grid format means tiles can be arranged in different structures based on the desired flow of the story and navigation between pages can also be applied.

 

Using the builder tool each tile can be laid out, edited and have content added to it, whether that is a photo, video, piece of audio or just text.

The content of a tile can vary from featuring just a photo to acting as an index page with a list of sections, like chapters, which can be clicked on by the viewer to reach different parts of the story.
Users can also edit transitions between tiles, the order of the tiles and other details such as changing the background colour of the tile.

The final product is viewable via a URL and can also be embedded, and played through the Storyplanet player. Currently this is a Flash player, but Storyplanet is currently working on a HTML version..."

Minna Kilpeläinen's curator insight, January 12, 2013 5:17 PM

Storyplanet seems to be a very cool and easy tool for creating and publishing interactive stories with all kinds of media. Very useful for journalists - and for school kids and teachers, too. Worth trying!

Shanika Journey's curator insight, January 20, 2013 4:21 PM

That's actually a pretty cool way to report the news.

EQUIPPING YOU FOR THE FOURTH REVOLUTION IN JOURNALISM Yet again, journalism is undergoing radical change. James Harding, the BBC's director of news and current affairs, speaks of a fourth revolution in journalism. First there was print, and then came the first three revolutions: • Radio • Television • Online Each caused radical upheaval in their turn. The fourth revolution, which is taking place right now, is being caused by mobile technology. The brand new 2nd edition of Multimedia Journalism is designed to help student journalists join that fourth revolution.

How Facebook’s News Feed Weeds Out Clickbait | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Andy Bull's insight:

From the post: "This algorithmic tuning has allowed Facebook’s feed to stay fresh after nearly a decade. It’s too smart to let spammers drown the feed in crappy marketing, scandalous headlines, or non-stop posts. Meanwhile, the algorithm ensures that no matter how many friends you add, the feed stays relevant."

What if a newsroom treated its audience as a fount of story ideas rather than a faceless group of people consuming articles conceived and crafted by journalists?

What if a newsroom treated its audience as a fount of story ideas rather than a faceless group of people consuming articles conceived and crafted by journalists? | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

You might be thinking backward if your newsroom sticks to the following formula: Editors sit around and decide which stories should be told.

Andy Bull's insight:

From the post: "This brand of reporting, which has been called "discovery journalism," has its roots in the personal, questing reportage of New Journalism pioneered by the likes of Gay Talese and Tom Wolfe in the 1960s and has manifested in the last two years with breakout hits like "Serial" and "Mystery Show." Both programs are concerned with showing audiences how and why reporters gather their facts and give listeners a front-row seat as editors and producers try to make sense of them."
