Hackastory Tools


Top questions

Almost every single week you ask us one – or all – of these questions.

    1. What are your favorite free and easy to use tools?
    2. Can you give us inspirational examples of interactive stories (build with tools)?
    3. When and where do I use these tools?

The first two are easy to answer:

  1. We wrote a blog about it: 10 best free digital storytelling tools for journalists in 2018. It has been in our top 5 of best reads articles since the day of publishing.
  2. We sure can. This is another article from our top 5. It’s has been there for a whole year, every single day.

The answer to the 3rd question is less straightforward, because we believe a tool not the best starting point. The first reason: the story will always be the most important part, not its technical bells and whistles. Yes, there are many opportunities created by digital technology, but the impact you make with a story will depend on your vision, your audience and the context. If you want to be valuable in this digital age you’ll have to answer these questions first.
