What is the Storybook Player?
The Storybook player is a comprehensive media player created by UW Extended Campus. It has been designed with students and usability in mind. This is reflected in the simplicity of the user interface and its accessibility features.
Its main purpose and most common use is delivery of narrated presentation content. PowerPoint presentations are probably what you’re most familiar with in regards to narrated presenations.
Storybook allows students to access various forms of online content in manageable pieces from a table of contents located in the player’s sidebar. The player is content-agnostic, giving instructors the ability to assemble presentations using a wide array of assets, including slides with and without audio narration, Kaltura/YouTube/Vimeo videos, screencast recordings, basic animations, self-assessment quizzes, and HTML content. Storybook gives you the flexibility to curate content and present materials in a meaningful, pedagogically sound manner.
The media player also has a built-in quiz engine that you can use to integrate formative self-assessments throughout your presentations. The quiz engine accommodates various forms of question types including true/false, multiple-choice, multiple select, fill-in-the-blank, and short answer.
