Digital Storytelling: Digital Stories

Resources to help create compelling digital stories.


When you write a paper, you start with an outline. When you create a media project, you start with a storyboard.


- allow you to gather your ideas before you begin working with video or audio content.

- encourage you to think about all elements of your digital story: visual, textual, audible.

- allow you to quickly sketch and try out different ideas

- help ID resources needed to complete the project and whether you can find them or need to create them yourself.

- generate questions which can help you decide whether your scope is achievable or not.

- are works in progress. They’ll change as you work on your project

- quick reference: Did you address all assignment elements, such as length and content.

* If you’re writing a full script out first, it shouldn’t be longer than 2 pages or reading it will make your story longer than the 2-3m time frame.
