I was on the del.icio.us homepage the other day setting up my new computer when I came across a familiar dog. That’s right, Alan Levine’s recent opus 50 Digital Story Tools. Now Alan’s a modest and extremely hardworking guy, and I’m sure he really doesn’t care for the fanfare (especially my over-the-top variety). Nonetheless, how can we even begin to articulate how much this resource has changed the work load for all sorts of folks in this field? I guess thanks might be a start.
I know that when Martha, Andy, Jerry, and I started talking about new, free web-based tools out there for students and faculty to tell digital stories, this was one stop shopping at its best. Who doesn’t love the CogDog?
Moreover, Martha recently pointed me to one of the gems from this resource “outlining” how not to tell a digital story. Take a look for yourself, it is brilliant.
