Digital Storytelling

Course Code: DCOM 2501

Academic Year: 2018-2019

This course blends theory and practice in an exploration of digital narrative: how stories can be told with digital and new media technologies, and how narrative can be experienced through the web and social media. Students work critically and creatively with linear and nonlinear narratives in a range of media. This class allows students to experiment with these new forms and strategies, apply trans-media approaches in their own work, and learn how storylines translate and transform through different media. By discussing case studies, the course introduces students to various forms of storytelling through different media. Students develop a project proposal, with an emphasis on organic development of a story through multiple cross-media platforms.
