Abstract

Digital Storytelling is a relatively new multimedia tool which can be both an effective instructional aid for teachers and an effective learning tool for students. It is created by using commonly available computer-based tools and usually includes a mixture of digital images, text, audio narration, background music, and video clips. This study not only presents how a Digital Storytelling project was implemented in an online course and the attitudes of the students toward Digital Storytelling, but also describes the difficulties that could occur when the use of technology is required of students whose majors are not in technology. The results revealed that students had a positive learning experience but still had some difficulties with the technology. The instructor, the researcher, and the students felt that the Digital Storytelling project was engaging, motivating, challenging, and also has the potential to help students develop the essential skills that are required as a forensic scientist.
