Thanks for your question! We hope our answer helps!

Question: I'm on a team in which we are geographically dispersed. Our user stories don't seem clear enough and to add to it we are not all trained in Agile. How can we improve our stories?

Answer: To improve your stories make sure they all have three main components, the user, the want, and the value. In addition your stories should have acceptance criteria. This helps developers code, and testers test to this criteria.
