Scrollytelling

This course is focused on the development of a Scrollytelling website, an interactive experience of scrolling through the telling of a story.

Students are asked to select one person and from the books by Vashti Harrison; Little Legends: Exceptional Men in Black History, Little Legends: Bold Women in Black History, Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World. Students learn methods in the design process in order to create a successful storytelling experience for the person they select.

The final deliverable for this course is an interactive website that tells the story of the person each student selected. When selecting the content each student uses to build their story, I ask them to consider: Who writes the stories? Who benefits from the stories being told from that perspective? Who is missing from the stories?

I recommend this article, An introduction to Scrollytelling, Why Interactive Scroll-based Storytelling Works, by Christine M.

The work presented on this page was a result of students hard work during the Fall 2020 Covid Semester.
