Multimedia storytelling

computerI was talking with Amara Aguilar today about a class we hope to offer next spring on multimedia storytelling. Basically, we're ramping up our old Internet for Journalists course to have it emphasize multimedia storytelling. So exciting! Wish we had thought of it sooner so that we could have started it as early as fall semester.

It'll be great to work in the dynamics of audio video, slide shows, intractive Flash and more to tell a large story in multiple chunks. We'll be a leader in the area in offering such a course. But what we'll be doing will be more and more common with online publications in the future.

The New York Times does some stuff now and the Poynter Institute offers an interesting roadmap on how to start.
