  • Overview

    A transmedia narrative represents the integration of meaning‐making experiences across a range of different media platforms; it takes one story and expands it across platforms. This course covers essential elements of transmedia storytelling from its history and key proponents to the critical examination and evaluation of key case studies and trending examples. Students will become familiar with multiple types of transmedia storytelling; analyze its multiple cohesive narratives; assess both commercial and grassroots extensions, and the impact on audiences (engagement, interaction, immersion and co‐creation).
