Digital storytelling: functionalities so far implemented
At present, there are two browsing environments of the networks of stories. The first one, play-mode, helps in building a personal sequence to exploring videos, albums of photos, and reading the texts of the story according the sequence spurred by the personal curiosity and interest of the user [Fig. 8]. In the second one, browse-and-print-mode, the clips are ordered according the main thematic area and type. In this consultation, text and images of individual clips can be easily printed, video can be played and album browsed [Fig. 9]. The webpage of each clip can be shared through social media.
Clips in the “play-mode”
a) Clips in the story-net
Each thumbnail on the screen represents a clip: a story. The lines are links to netting them. It is a mind map you can navigate as you like. What we get on the screen it is not the entire storynet, but a local map, showing only the stories with connection of degree-2 to a particular focus, in the center. By dragging any other clip to the center, you will change the focus and explore other clips. In fact, all the clips can be moved around and the links act like springs to keep boxes connected while you perform some manipulation. Anytime you put a clip in the center, in the viewfinder, that story enters your playlist, displayed on the right of your screen, and your choice is recorded and an orange triangle appears in the right corner of the thumbnail. You can always reset the view and start a new browsing. For every line connecting two clips, a caption appears by pulling each of the clips connected with the one in the viewfinder.
Clips in the “browse-and-print-mode”
A graph offers an overview of the clips according the links proposed by the authors of the narrative. Clips are also listed according the section (eg. the thematic areas) they belong and the type (video, album, text). Clips in the list can be browsed by accessing to detailed information on the content of each clip. The graph you find in the page of each clip highlights the specific connections of the clip considered. You can view the clips connected, by browsing the graph or by clicking them in the table of links for each clip.
