Story Development For Interactive Media was a great class taught by a great teacher. This class was a mix of creative writing and technology. Assignments consisted of written stories, presented in ways that encouraged interaction. I enjoyed writing creative stories and practicing my web skills by developing websites to present the stories. I created a website to showcase some of my favorite stories from the class.
