Digital Storytelling

Introduction to the Course:

Learn how to share your message through the creation of stunning, professional, and informative digital stories.

Digital storytelling is an important part of our world today, as online media platforms continue to grow and become our main source for information. Creating stimulating digital stories designed for target audiences is now a crucial element to sharing those online messages and impactful content.

Through the lens of health and One Health concepts, students are guided through the skills and knowledge required to write and execute impressive digital storyboards, and asked to create their own storyboard with exclusive access to Pageflow.

Content, schedule and requirements:

For ease and flexibility, this course is completely asynchronous but does include several feedback loops between peers and between the LMU writing center in order for students to improve and execute their best work. The course lasts 8 weeks (May 16th – July 11th), but the content is available for students to complete at their own pace.

The course is divided into 5 sections:

Chapter 1: Introduction to Digital Storytelling and One Health
Chapter 2: Script Writing
Chapter 3: Storyboarding
Chapter 4: Implementation and Feedback
Chapter 5: Final Feedback and Certificate
