More than 10 online videos that teach digital storytelling (DST) techniques were produced for college students, elementary students, in-service teachers, and life-long learners. People who want to create a digital story in Japan can see each of the online videos on the website. Each DST online video addresses questions such as "What is DST?", "How to use DST on your topic", "How to use Windows Movie Maker", "How to construct a digital story", "What and how to show/send the story to many people", "What to keep in mind about DST", and "What are the most important aspects of DST". Seeing the online DST video in elementary classrooms made it easier for 4th graders to create digital stories. In college classes for future teachers, each student was able to create an original digital story after viewing two or more of the DST videos. Moreover, the DST videos are leading more and more in-service teachers to become aware of digital storytelling in Japan.
