- Google Slides - with hyperlinks to other slides in the presentation
- Google Forms - with branching from multiple choice questions to different pages of the Form
- Google Sites - with hyperlinks to different pages on the Site
- YouTube videos - with Annotation links or End Screen link to other videos
- Google Docs - with hyperlinks to headings on other pages
Each of these methods has its own benefits, challenges, and reasons why you would use one tool versus another. However, if you are looking for ease of use, in my opinion using Google Docs is one of the quickest and easiest ways to create a “Choose Your Own Adventure” story. Some of the benefits of using Docs for this purpose include:
- Most students are more familiar with Google Docs that any of the other tools.
- Docs makes it easy to add text, images, and formatting.
- Linking is easy using headings.
- It looks and feels like a traditional book.
