Abstract

Narrative engages people both emotionally and intellectually, shaping the way we perceive, interpret, and interact with the world. Our group is putting that power to new uses by experimenting with applications that are also stories: applications that use the principles of narrative to grab and keep people's attention, that guide novice users through the process of becoming experts, and that provide experiences that are as emotional and reflective as they are efficient and powerful.
