Tomorrow's Best-Selling Novels Will Use This 19th-Century Trick | WIRED. Aug 2014 | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
We're seeing the return of old-fashioned serialized literature.

 

'A year ago, a 24-year-old college student named Anna Todd stumbled on a trove of feverish fan fiction about the boy band One Direction. It had been posted to Wattpad, a Toronto-based website and app that lets anyone write a story and comment on the stories of others. Entranced, Todd began concocting her own tale, a torrid romance between a sweet-hearted ingenue and a brooding version of One Direction singer Harry Styles. She typed the first 600 words into Wattpad and hit Publish....'

UX [User Experience] Design Thinking for Transmedia

UX [User Experience] Design Thinking for Transmedia | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

'The first and most important is that UX design is an iterative rather than linear process. There are different ways to describe and illustrate the iterative process, but here is a simplified version. First designers do research and brainstorm during a learning stage of the process; second they build prototypes during a building stage of the process; and third they test usability and effectiveness during a measuring stage of the process. The process then repeats, as ineffective ideas are jettisoned and the project moves moves closer and closer to a “finished” state with more and more refined iterations.'


Via The Digital Rocking Chair
siobhan-o-flynn's insight:

"UX is short for User Experience. Broadly speaking UX design is a process for designing positive interactions between people (users) and products (often software or websites) and/or other people. Taking a user-centric approach and drawing upon the disciplines of visual design, psychology, and human-computer interaction (HCI) research, UX aims to design not just the visuals and interface, but the entire user experience. While UX is most often applied to software and website design, UX designers are also designing physical experiences like in-store shopping experiences, airport lounges, classrooms for schools, museum and art exhibitions, etc."

Over the weekend, a game developer in Boston named Brianna Wu fled her home after an online stalker vowed to rape and kill her. She isn't the first woman who's been forced into hiding by aggrieved video game fans associated with Gamergate, the self-styled reform movement that's become difficult to ignore over the past several months as its beliefs have ramified out from the fever swamps of the internet into the real world. She probably won't be the last.

In September 2009, type designer Jessica Hische started what would become a wildly popular personal project: Daily Drop Caps, in which she intricately illustrated a decorative letter every day and uploaded it to her blog. Her lettering style modernizes an age-old typographic tradition: a drop cap is the single large letter that starts a book chapter, often seen in sacred texts or early editions of classic literature. The artform dates back to 2,000-year-old illuminated manuscripts...."

'For purists, a serial is a work that the author writes in progress, releases on a specific schedule or deadline (close to the time when the writing gets done), and is produced without a preconceived middle or ending. Such serials often involve reader engagement and may incorporate reader feedback that helps the author mold the story along the way. Bestselling science-fiction author John Scalzi launched his career on a serial, Old Man’s War, and of course everybody knows and even loves shows like All My Children. The soap opera is classic serial storytelling..."

Comic Book World Is Becoming Friendlier to Women. Video Game World, Take Note. | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

With #GamerGate churning out one sexist outrage after another, it's easy to lose hope that women will ever be fully accepted in geeky entertainment circles. But not all circles are alike. The comics industry, for instance, is beginning to demonstrate that just because a pastime is male-dominated doesn't mean it has to stay that way, and that efforts to be more inclusive to women can work. 

 

This past weekend's New York Comic Con demonstrated this real shift, with major panels exploring "an explosion of enthusiasm and visibility for women in comics," as the description for Vulture's panel on female fandom reads....'

Transmedia is Still So Young: Femke Wolting and Tommy Pallotta on Last Hijack Interactive | Filmmaker Magazine | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

'Access is always an issue with documentary, creating unique challenges in war zones or similar areas where filmmakers would be in physical danger or simply cannot go. The documentary Last Hijack, produced by Submarine Channel and directed by Femke Wolting and Tommy Pallotta, doesn’t just deal with these issues but makes them one of the film’s greatest strengths. In documenting piracy in Somalia, the filmmakers turned to techniques like animation — Pallotta produced both Waking Lifeand A Scanner Darkly — to show what could not be filmed, and then went one step further by creating an interactive documentary to accompany the traditional linear film..'

From Gamification to Touch Interfaces: Designing for 21st Century Learners (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

The beauty of both games and devices is that you can start small and work your way into bigger, grander experiences. And, as with all things educational (including the needs of students), it is best to give yourself and your students some room to fail and grow. Your first game won't be your best game. The first narration of a whiteboard on your app won't be as good as your last. But with each new method, you might find numerous new ways to connect with your students, to motivate them, and to make things stick. Now that's learning.

La tactique transmedia de la saison 4 de Games of Thrones est brillamment expliquée par une des spécialistes françaises du transmedia. Professeur à l'université de Bordeaux,  à l'origine du 1er Mooc francophone sur le transmedia dont elle a conçu plusieurs modules de ce programme, elle décortique ici la dernière campagne  de Games of Throne.

L'originalité et la force du nouveau dispositif transmedia de Games of Thrones s'appuie sur une déclinaison autour des 5 sens, chacune sur une plateforme différente. Les fans ont été mis au cœur de la stratégie de pré-lancement de la nouvelle série et ont été invités à imaginer et partager des créations comme celle des bannières. Un site spécifique a également maintenu l'intérêt entre les 2 saisons : beautiful death qui recense les plus belles morts de l'ensemble des épisodes précédents !
