Student Digital Stories from BUC, Malaysia

Second Digital Storytelling Contest at BUC (2022)

As the Covid-19 pandemic swept through the world, our FRIENDS from the Philippines, Thailand, Bhutan, Malaysia and Cambodia were also affected. While the uncertainty around the globe affected all fields of life, FRIENDS’ digital stories transformed into a way of connecting internationally, at least virtually, while no other international travel was allowed.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, another Digital Storytelling contest was conducted in 2022. The winning video creators in the Berjaya University College are Nissaliny Ragu, Vanessa Koo, Lim Ying Huan, and Wong Kah Wei. Their digital stories, as well as the many other submitted, can be viewed at the following link.

First Digital Storytelling Contest at BUC (2020)

The Contest was conducted in the framework of Intercultural Passport virtual module’s piloting stage at BUC in 2020. You can watch all videos submitted in the Contest below.
