Transmedia Learning (excerpt from original blog June 2010)
My background is in teaching and learning, as a teacher in schools and in Learning and Development in the corporate sector.

Using multiple platforms for education and learning is far from a new phenomenon, the key is in applying the adult learning theory to develop an authentic, engaging, relevant learning experience.
I’ve not heard the term Transmedia Learning in relation to adult learning as yet. Henry Jenkins has begun to explore Transmedia Education in terms of teaching in schools and colleges and mentions Transmedia Learning in passing and I’d really like to explore that concept more.

An authentic, engaging, relevant, effective, enjoyable learning experience that assists a person in achieving their personal and professional goals.
