Dialogues: Digital Storytelling with Microsoft Sway

In this session we demonstrated the functionality of Microsoft’s digital storytelling app.

  • Quickly create interactive and accessible web content without needing to be a web developer.
  • Create and/or share Sways with the rest of the web, just the University or select users.
  • Sway Overview

We then presented a case study on how the software has been used to create Research Digistories as online educational resources for research students. In the case study, Sways have been created using past student work and focus not on the product of the research but on the externalisation of the hidden and personal knowledge involved in the research process itself.

Sway is available to all staff and students by logging into sway.com with their Office 365 credentials. (campusID@newcastle.ac.uk and your university password)
