The internet is a powerful tool in the hands of journalists. Web technology and the possibilities of online storytelling are more important than ever before to be embraced by news media. Hackastory believes it is crucial for journalists to stay influential in this digital era.
We hope we can contribute to that goal with our workshops, events and this site. DigitalStory.Tools is an initiative of Hackastory. At Hackastory we bring coders, designers and storytellers together to build the future of journalism during hackathons. Think: new tools, news games, mobile interactives and virtual reality stories.
DigitalStory.Tools is a directory of tools and resources to help you build your digital stories. It’s a list of our favourite tools and – too be honest – we had this list for a while. It was an Excel-sheet we used while we worked as a journalist, designer and an editor in chief. It just made us happy. And we noticed, also our participants of our hackathons got really excited. That’s why we build this site. You know: sharing is caring.
We’ll continue to update this directory with new tools. If you’re missing your favourite tool, please let us know.
