50+ Web 2.0 Ways To Tell a Story
Note! 50+ Ways is no longer being updated here but over at the new site for 50+ Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Story-- http://50ways.wikispaces.com/ It has more organizational features and includes ways for you to add content to the site once you join the new wiki.
Why 50 Ways?
To somewhat mangle the elegant lyrics of Paul Simon
The story is all inside your head
She said to me
The answer is easy if you
Go on the web and see
I'd like to help you in your struggle
There must be fifty web 2.0 ways
To tell a story
It was not long ago that producing multimedia digital content required expensive equipment and technical expertise; we are at the point now where we can do some very compelling content creation with nothing more complex than a web browser. In this workshop you will:
- Design a basic story concept that can be created in a web 2.0 tool using images, audio, and/or video.
- And then create it quickly using one of 50+ different web tools that are free to use.
- Plus, you will share in this wiki site your example and observations on the value of the tool
We are using the word "story" in a general sense; it may be a deeply personal one of the digital storytelling variety
, or it may be a tale of a travel trip, or a simple multimedia presentation. As of Jun 21, 2011 12:02 am Now at 65 Ways!
As Easy as 1-2-3!
What is a "story" here consists of more than one type of media (images + text, audio + images, etc) that are assembled on the web, and can be presented on the web or embedded into other web sites.
And just to prove it can be done, I am going to try and tell the same story as an example for every tool in the list and use as an example in the workshop materials (see the final list of 50 Stories About Dominoe
). It has the basic media types you will use- images, text, video, and/or audio.
