Spread the loveJust like listening to audiobooks through electronic devices, podcasts are becoming more and more popular. These iPod-based audio broadcasts encompass a wide variety of subjects, such as entrepreneurship, politics, history, to entertaining series on serial killers.

Digital Storytelling Tool – Exposure

Digital Storytelling Tool – Exposure | Digital Storytelling Tools, Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it

Hello again everybody! This week’s blog post will focus on a digital storytelling tool of my choice. Storytelling tools allow you to tell a story. The tool I decided to work with was Exposure. Exposure allows users to create stories with photos, visual texts, and a beautiful layout. I basically created a website/blog. Exposure was easy to use, because every link to add a post, or change the settings was right in front of me.

Digital Storytelling: A Creator’s Guide to Interactive Entertainment (Carolyn Handler Miller)

Digital Storytelling: A Creator’s Guide to Interactive Entertainment (Carolyn Handler Miller) | Digital Storytelling Tools, Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it

Digital Storytelling: A Creator’s Guide to Interactive Entertainment. This book has gone through several editions, the most recent the third edition from 2014. Miller is interested in works that are digitally delivered, interactive, non-linear, narrative, with distinct characters, participatory and navigable. Each of her chapters ends with some idea-generating exercises to help you brainstorm about the topics she’s just raised. Unlike many of the books I’ve been surveying recently, this one is not specifically focused on games or the game industry; instead, it’s looking from a storyteller’s perspective at how to deliver experiences for which the page of a book is not necessarily sufficient. That in itself gives it a rather different flavor: many games writing books are quick to identify the ways in which their game genres are constraining or limiting, or present “challenges”.
