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 temporary access to Pageflow.
Pageflow is a digital platform that allows users to combine their own images, audio, and videos into a seamless presentation style with online sharing capabilities. It does not facilitate the creation of animated videos, although those can be made separately and embedded in Pageflow for an enhanced user experience.
Please find more information in the course flyer.
