Vodcast of Digital Storytelling Talk for First Person Conference

If you’re interested in hearing & seeing a version of the talk I gave in Melbourne on digital storytelling in higher education, you can now, in addition to reading the text version (which includes all citations and links to the original files of all sorts). Here is the vodcast–be forewarned–it is 20 minutes long! I do know that ACMI plans to link the audiocasts of the talks off their site at some point. (Also, to keep the file size manageable, I’ve compressed it to a bit of a tinnier sound than I’d like… And so, I am also adding the audio file on its own.)

Start with the Introduction, and then watch the digital story. Originally the voiceover consisted of me talking live at the conference, so I am sure the recording will come off as much less interesting than the real thing. Give me a group a people, I say, and watch me get passionate about a topic!


Digital Storytelling and Higher Education: Context, Community and Imagination

  1. Barbara, I am floored with your eloquent presentation, and how you and your students have matured in your practices … you frame Digital Storytelling in such a way that it is clearly a rigorous academic exercise … bravo!

    I plan on sharing this with some of my faculty.

    I might make a suggestion for embedding your quicktime movie: add CONTROLLER=”TRUE” to the embed tag, and increase the HEIGHT value by 16px so that the controller will be visible.

    I was also thinking that Ourmedia.org might be a good venue for your students to showcase their works … Good for you, but also good for Ourmedia to have some more substantial stuff on their site, imho.
