Full Course Description:

This course is a production course in which students explore issues of sequence, storytelling, linear and non-linear narrative online. Students will look at the ways stories are constructed using hypertext, multimedia, social networking, map hacks and gaming among other interactive formats and will begin to develop their own language and style. As inspiration, we will look at various web projects and read Gonzalo Frasca’s Videogames of the Oppressed and other writings addressing social activism in networked spaces. ┬áStudents will develop web-based work in flash and html with embedded digital video and sound.
