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.
