This paper presents excerpts from a literature study, which is part of a larger study to explore the benefits of digital storytelling (DST) in strengthening student comprehension, students’ engagement and motivation in higher education. Specifically, the study is focused on the use of DST as a learning activity and a tool for evaluating student learning outcomes in undergraduate lectures. In this context, DST as an activity focuses on students’ action in creating DST in a classroom-based project situation, both individually and collaboratively. As an evaluation tool, DST is used as a media of learning reflection in certain topics. From the results of the study, it can be found that the use of DST as a classroom-based project activity may enhance the teaching and learning process to be more interesting, motivates students to engage more in learning and comprehend more deeply the learning material. In addition, reflection in the form of DST is preferable compared to paper-based written reflection.
