Student Digital Stories from MSU, Thailand

Second Digital Storytelling Contest at MSU (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 Mahasarakham University are Phanphasa Butrueang, Amnat Seanthawesuk, At Dechalerd, Supakorn Glomklom, and Thanakorn Milintanuch. Their digital stories, as well as the many other submitted, can be viewed at the following link.

First Digital Storytelling Contest at MSU (2020)

In total, 15 student digital stories were developed by students of MSU in Thailand in the framework of the Digital Storytelling Contest facilitated by the institution. The Contest was conducted in the framework of Intercultural Passport virtual module’s piloting stage at MSU in 2020. You can watch all videos submitted in the Contest below.

The digital stories created by Wasin Tonmat, Sitthiphon Malison and At Dechalerd were ranked first, second and respectively third based on the assessment of the jury and the number of points collected. Congratulations to the three student winners at MSU!
