We did briefly cover this story on Episode 17 of the show last night. But I think this is a big enough opportunity for all writers to take a look at, so I thought I would share some more info on the site.
Here’s the introduction video:
Taken from the site:
The 8-chapter course starts on October 25th, 2013 and ends on December 20th, 2013.
It will offer weekly video material, lessons, interviews and tasks on the following topics (not necessarily in this order):
– storytelling basics
– serial formats (on the TV, web and beyond)
– storytelling in role-playing games
– interactive storytelling in video games
– transmedia storytelling
– alternate-reality gaming
– augmented reality and location-based storytelling
– the role of tools, interfaces and information architectures in current storytelling.
Our first Storytelling-MOOC will focus on fictional formats.

Now if that hasn’t sparked your interest, then perhaps that it is totally free, will.
Resources like this, from actual professionals and teachers, don’t come along often. It closes in a few days, so I wanted to make sure as many writers as possible took advantage, while they could.
I hope to chat with you all more about this, during the course.
