The NewsCube beta is up and we’d love you to give it a spin.
The NewsCube is a storytelling tool that lets you create and aggregate complex stories. It’s a cool and engaging way to show multiple perspectives and synthesise the stories, documents, images and other components in a way that is easily understood.
We think journalists, researchers, strategic communicators and educators will love the NewsCube as a way to explain issues and allow readers, clients or students to explore and interact with them.
The NewsCube was prototyped as part of a PhD research project, and those who used this early version thought it was playful and it gave a sense of ownership over stories. Now, thanks to a grant from The Walkley Foundation we’ve managed to develop this Beta version.
Initially we’re giving limited access to the NewsCube, so you’ll need a code to create an account. If you’re interested in being involved drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us who you are and why you’re interested.
