A few days ago, Emy, our unit head received an intriguing query: what do we know about story-boarding apps?
One of our faculty participants for the library’s grant-funding Center for Integrating Teaching and Technology (CITT, for short) has a cool idea. She wants to have her students give a visual report using a digital storyboard when they present research projects to her class. She doesn’t want them to use PowerPoint. The faculty member wanted help finding storyboard software or applications that meet two criteria: they must be free and must be easy-to-use. The vision is that students will find the story-boarding app user-friendly.
We didn’t know of any apps for story-boarding off the top of our heads, but we did some Internet digging and came up with some options for the faculty member to research. (Legalese time: The resources listed below do not imply an endorsement. We haven’t tested or studied the feasibility of these tools.)
