The E-Learning Heroes Community in 2014: My Story!

It was a great year for me at the articulate e-Learning heroes community in 2014. I recall that night just a few weeks after I decided to pursue e-Learning as a professional career, sometime in May last year. I was bent on finding out information about e-Learning on the Web and so I searched and searched until I came across a blog by Christy Tucker. She explained in several of her posts and I decided to finally go e-Learning.

One of the seven elements of a good digital Story as discussed in an earlier post is the power or uniqueness of your voice. The ability to engage the emotional power of your voice to pass across the content of your story, makes your story either engaging or boring. Creating a good audio Narration is therefore a very important consideration in creating digital stories. Locating the right background music as well helps to portray properly the content.Read More »Audio Narration and Background Music in digital Storytelling
