Ένα εργαλείο δημιουργίας online κόμικς
This MSc Thesis describes the design, the development and the assessment of an online community for web comics. From this community, the users will be able not only to upload and publish their comics, but also to read, download, print and vote stories from other users. This portal also hosts an easy to use tool for creating online comics strips named Cosy Comic Strip Creator, which is followed by graphic image libraries ready to be imported to the tool. This tool has been created to help users that cannot draw to create their own comic strips easily by dragging and dropping images in order to say their own story. The tool has also been designed to be used from early aged students in order to be used in classroom and change them to creators of educational materials. It can also be used from teachers in order to create educational material with comic stories and interactive activities that would attract students who are less interested in classroom. The two use cases that took place in Greek schools in Athens, had great results. Students didn’t have difficulties by using the tool, but, contrariwise had fun and were effective with their exercises.
