Love Across the Battle Lines Interactive Digital Story : PREMIERE!

Hi Everyone!

Thank you for visiting my blog!!

The Love Across the Battle Lines Interactive Digital Story is finally ALMOST complete. I still have some editing to do but it is just about ready. Tomorrow (May 13th) my Digital Storytelling class will host an exhibition of the best of the stories we have been working on all semester. The exhibition will take place in the Rockefeller Library's new Patrick Ma Digital Scholarship Lab. The interactive story below will be included along with two of my other projects. It was created using a online storytelling platform called Zeega. Zeega allows users to make interactive and nonlinear stories using images from Flikr, Youtube videos and sound files from Soundcloud.comAs I work on the final edits I would love to hear feedback. Do the links work? Was it relatively easy to navigate? Did the sound work? Critique me please! I want to make sure I fix all the glitches before the exhibition tomorrow afternoon. IF you want to wait to play with the story once it is complete then book mark my post and please return tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for your interest in my work!!

  1. I love the music. "Black is the color of my true love's hair." Great rendition. And I've always loved Sweet Honey in the Rock's "Wade in the Water."

    The links are a bit confusing to me. Maybe if the "trails" of questions & research answers were numbered, I'd know which trail I was on, and realize that one line of questions was over, and I could choose another line of questions. (Like a menu.) The next arrow is sometimes on the left, sometimes on the right, sometimes both . . . so I guess I often feel I maybe be clicking on the wrong one and going in circles.

    As it is, I think the color-coding is a good idea. I was able to start down a few different trails.
