Non-Linear Storytelling and The Web Workshop
BSc (Hons) Web Design and Development
A great way to start exploring web programming is by making a non-linear story.
That is, a text-driven piece where a reader can make decisions about where they want the narrative to go. In this workshop we use Twine to create a simple non-linear story for the web, then enhance its look and feel using CSS styling and additional HTML elements (such as images). With participants getting instance results and a chance to explore CSS creatively, this is a great way to showcase the web as much more than a utility.
