On Thursday, Feb. 2, 24 students from WSU Vancouver's Digital Storytelling class (DTC 354) visited Fort Vancouver with their instructors for the course (Dr. Dene Grigar and Fort Vancouver Chief Ranger Greg Shine). These students will be creating mobile digital content for the app as part of the class, building upon the Women Issues and Gender module. We are very excited to see what they come up with!
Here are a few photos of the group (courtesy of Cassie Anderson, Park Ranger & Historic Programs Coordinator, of the National Park Service site):
Afterward, documentary filmmaker Beth Harrington also tried the app, and we hope to be able to work together with her, too, in the future to explore the potential of mobile apps, and place-based media, with the embedding of nonfiction filmmaking into physical landscapes.

Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)
This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.
