Digital Storytelling

Digital storytelling is a web-based way to tell a story using multimedia such as images, video and sound.  Digital stories are brief, lasting only 3 to 5 minutes.  Digital stories are typically designed by someone who is a novice and certainly not an expert in media design. As such, you should try to find a balance between the content of your story and the technical aspects.
