The OPUS Collective is an online, openly accessible, searchable repository of culture-rich, curriculum-linked stories created through digital media. In its completion, the site will include Web 2.0 social technologies such as story ratings, comment fields, storyteller profiles, user-created groups, scripts to embed OPUS stories into other blogs or websites, and the ability to link to stories hosted on other sites such as YouTube. To this end, the word “opus” not only refers to an original creative work, but the acronym also represents the goal of “Offering Perspective Using Storytelling."
