50+ Digital Storytelling Tools - For Free!

Google is awesome. It just lead me to this awesome wiki created by Alan Levine.

http://cogdogroo.wikispaces.com/StoryTools

It has 64 different digital storytelling tools. Tools that are free. Tools that he has tested to make sure that they work. Tools that he has posted examples that he made. Awesome. I will be busy for days, no weeks trying them out.

Gary,

Wanted to let you know about heekya.

It's simple. Storytelling is broken online. We've fixed it.

Here are some of the highlights:

Heekya is the Wikpedia of Stories, a social storytelling platform that is changing the way consumers create, share, and discover stories. Free. Fun. Easy. 60 seconds. See it here: http://heekya.com/preview.php
What you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) drag and drop story editor. Import all media (photo, video, text, and audio) from third party services (Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, etc.)
Users grab and embed Heekya story widget across social networks (Facebook, MySpace, et. al) blogs (wordpress, blogger, twitter) personal websites and via e-mail and instant message.
Ability to re-mix and mashup other stories, retelling them from a consumers own vantage point, that will keep user engagement levels high and attract more traffic virally, as people share and re-share stories.

Storytelling is at the core of human existence. We're building Heekya to unlock powerful stories of people all over the world and empower them to share their story with anyone, anywhere, anytime.
