Abstract: In earlier research on face-to-face digital storytelling courses for older adults 65 years of age and over, findings showed that this activity provided an opportunity to forge social connections with others through story as well increase the technical proficiency of participants. A digital story is a type of movie that embeds multimedia such as narration, photographs, music and text. In these courses, participants created legacy digital stories that reflected significant events, people and places in their lives. To reach a wider audience, our original face-to-face course was transformed to a fully online course. In this paper, we describe the andragogical approach used for designing this course for older adults and the perceptions of their learning experience within the context of these principles. Our findings show that participants prefer the facilitator take a greater role in discussion forums and providing technical assistance.
