Project Brief: To produce a draft Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that will become the pilot BBC Academy MOOC. 

Multiplatform Producer, BBC Academy, July – December 2014 

  • Used existing BBC Academy content to write a highly detailed  five week draft course structure. I decided to write it on something I love – storytelling.
  • The University of Birmingham were very impressed with my proposed structure and agreed to be the academic partner.
  • Digital Storytelling is part of Creative Skillset’s research into online creative courses. 
  • Digital Storytelling moved from development into production in January 2015.


This is another development project I worked on with Chromatrope  (along with iTunes U and Choose your own BBC Career) that placed the Academy at the forefront of digital innovation ahead of its move to Birmingham.


Digital Storytelling will start in September 2015.

“This is a fantastic example of the BBC Academy looking at new ways of delivering training not only across the BBC, but also sharing it with the wider creative industry.” Joe Godwin, Director of BBC Birmingham and the BBC Academy.
