I have enrolled on this free online storytelling course from ‘iversity’, and I have just completed the first unit, which was really interesting, and I would recommend it to any writer, performer, or designer as it is aimed at storytellers of all types.
From what I have completed so far, the course material looks really good, and it has been very interesting. It is an 8 chapter course that ends on the 20/12/2013, and includes topics on storytelling basics – serial formats (on the TV, web and beyond) – storytelling in role-playing games – interactive storytelling in video games – transmedia storytelling – alternate-reality gaming – augmented reality and location-based storytelling – the role of tools, interfaces and information architectures in current storytelling.
The course is a MOOC (a Massively Open On-line Course), and the whole thing started on the 25th October. The second chapter will start around the 31st I expect, so don’t get left behind.
