The aim of this study is to create a standard guideline for the development of instructional media (apps) with digital story telling (DST) concept for touch screen tablet. High demand for apps with mobile interaction has boosted the need to create tablet-based teaching products. Nevertheless, guidance to create such products is lacking. Content and comparative analyses were employed based on the previous studies on digital media guidelines to formulate the components of the guidelines. A total of 13 experts, representing the Institute of Teacher Education (ITE) and the Institute of Higher Education (IPTA), were appointed as panel of experts to validate the guideline. Expert review checklist and interviews were used as data collection methods. The guideline should ease novice designers cum teachers to develop apps with mobile technology. Besides, students too can benefit from the new teaching strategy with DST concept.
