Interactive Storytelling for Online Media Platforms

Interactive Storytelling

This couse begins by asking key questions about how people, groups and institutions are represented in narrative. You will then look at the bases of storytelling and how these might be applied to interactive stories. Finally you will look at transmedia storytelling and learn how storyworlds may span media to create rich and persistent narratives. The courses will proceed through project based work in which you will learn by doing, and by critically examining what you are doing. This course is for those wishing to upgrade their skills, artists wishing to learn story-based teachniques, and social media content producers and influencers who wish to deepen their understanding of the media with which they work.
