This paper outlines a model for the incorporation of storytelling techniques into the design of online courses. There is considerable research in to the power of digital storytelling to transform, engage and educate, yet few of the courses on the Unitec LMS incorporate storytelling techniques into their design. This model is being developed to provide a stepping-stone for lecturers to move from traditional models of content delivery to digital storytelling.
