Digital video in education is still an emerging field of both practice and research. It has become rapidly apparent that the quality of student-produced digital videos is consistently lacking in one are more areas. In particular, videos lack in quality and quantity of academic content, production value, and quality of story. We therefore contend that three areas of emphasis of digital video narratives are important, these three areas being 1) academic rigor, 2) production value, and 3) storytelling. In this paper we discuss each area in detail and close with an explanation of the author’s Thirteen Elements of Digital Narratives and how these elements are tied to each of the three areas.
