Abstract

Faculty and graduate students at the University of Houston have been using digital storytelling in courses, workshops and special projects since the late 1990s. Building on a history of working with community partners that contribute content in exchange for the design and development of innovative and educationally-meaningful technology resources, a partnership between the University of Houston's College of Education and Houston Public Television-KUHT began in an effort to use multimedia tools and resources to reach audiences of educators and their students, as well as local viewers who access television broadcasts and online materials via the web. To support the Ken Burns documentary film, The War, an interactive website was developed that allowed visitors to view digital stories about World War II as well as submit their own stories that could include an assortment of rich media formats including text, still images, audio and full-motion video.
