MULTIMEDIA PROJECT

  • Multimedia Communication website
  • Screencast-o-matic
  • SlideDoc
  • Knightlab: a suite of open source tools for digital storytelling; developed for journalists and media makers, but easy to use and engaging for novice users
    • Juxtapose: compare two images
    • Timeline JS: present a story that occurs over time
      • can include text, image, and video to present and analyze an event
      • also great for an interactive resume
    • Storymap: present a story in a specific location
    • Soundcite: add soundclips to text
      • here’s a soundclip you can use: http://sorapure.net/guitar.mp3 (just paste this where Soundcite prompts you for an audio URL)
      • works best with WordPress; in other words, create the soundclips in Soundcite and attach them to text that you publish with WordPress
    • Storyline: attach annotations to a basic line chart to tell the story behind the numbers (still in beta but works fine)
      • here’s my example with numbers from the Professional Writing Minor
