Learn to tell stories in an immersive and interactive way. This course will teach you how to get started in the world of interactive storytelling, using off-the-shelf coding software as well as the basic skills of photo, video and audio editing for the web.


This course is for you  
If you are a journalist, storyteller, citizen journalist, freelancer, community journalist, campaigner, filmmaker or photographer.
It is for everyone without access to teams of coders and designers and those who work on a small budget.
Why interactives? 
  • More effective: people on average spend six times longer viewing and reading interactives than standard web pages
  • Interactive: not unlike a computer game; the audience feels in charge
  • Immersive: it’s a hands-on experience
  • Attractive to advertisers: it’s a product in its own right
  • They create a two-way relationship with the audience; readers and viewers can send stories, data, video and comments.
