StoryTop is an excellent web tool students can use for digital storytelling projects. It is easy to use, free, does not require any software download, and  login is not required in order to save or share stories.  StoryTop provides a number of key elements for creating stories including: pre-made backgrounds, pictures of people and things,  anime, text, speech bubbles and many more. With a simple drag and drop, students pick clip arts they want to use in their stories, type in their data and share their creations using a generated code. 

To use StoryTop, head over to this page and click on the drop-down menu on the left side of the page. Choose a category from the list: for instance to add text, click on 'text', drag and drop a dialogue box, and type in your text. Repeat the same process with other elements. To add a new page, click on the green forward arrow at the bottom of the screen box. You can add as many pages as you want. If you haven't already done so, you will be prompted to add a title to your story once you click on the 'save' or arrow button. When your story is ready, click on 'Share' and grab the generated link  to share with others.  Give StoryTop a try and see if you like it. Enjoy
