Introduction to Transmedia Class: New ways to think about Digital Storytelling

Introduction to Transmedia Class: New ways to think about Digital Storytelling | Exploring Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

Lucas J.W. Johnson: "Last week at Transmedia Vancouver, I presented an Introduction to Transmedia class. I wanted to cover a lot of the overview and basics of transmedia storytelling for those members new to transmedia and provide them with resources, so that in the future, our conversations can really move forward, into the nuts and bolts, into a space where we can all learn from each other."
