Hashiroh Hussain, Norshuhada Shiratuddin . Components of Heuristic Strategy: Evaluation of Stories with DST tool on Touch Screen Tablet. International Journal of Computer Applications. 130, 11 ( November 2015), 6-10. DOI=10.5120/ijca2015907106
Storytelling technique is an effective method for teaching and learning process among educators due to its easy and fast technique. With the boost of technology on mobile devices such as tablet and smart phone, creating stories become easy with a tool on natural interfaces. Compared to the size with the smart phone, interaction of tablet works effectively with flick/fling and pinch/spread function which contributes the realistic details by making changes in the size and editing character in the creation of stories. However, the lack of established guidelines (heuristics) for touch screen interaction has led to misunderstanding of heuristic on mobile applications specifically on creating stories. Therefore, heuristic strategy is proposed to evaluate the digital storytelling (DST) tool that have been designated. The strategy consists of three components: Interface, DST and Multimedia. Next, in order to determine the relationship among the three components, a Pearson Correlation Analysis is employed. The results indicate that the strategy is useful and potential to be implemented in similar DST tool applications.
