After completing the media-specific courses of Video Production, Basic Photography and Photography for Publication within the Communication Major at Cabrini University, I was eager to expand my horizon even more.
In this communication course, Dr. Dawn Francis, a Cabrini graduate herself, opened my eyes and the eyes of many other students to the knowledge of the elements of effective multimedia storytelling. Since day one, I learned how to research story ideas, interview sources, design compelling stories, and produce story narratives in multiple media formats.
This course has truly showed me what it means to apply hands-on media knowledge and skills to create compelling multimedia stories. After gaining an overall further appreciation for the digital storytelling project process, I can now confidently say I know what my role is when it comes to the process of digital storytelling.
