Being someone who loves movies, this course has provided me deep knowledge about storytelling . the lectures were very understandable for a beginner. Hope to use this knowledge in future. :)
I definitely recommend this course to all those who want to improve their creativity, their storytelling skills and learn to use different technologies to engage all types of audiences.

the course itself was fantastically robust and the assignments walk you through producing your own transmedia bible, which was incredibly helpful for my project, and my career. the assignments say they will take 1 hour, but they are asking for 1000-1250 words (or equivalent) each and I don't know anybody who can accomplish that in an hour. I easily spent 3-5 hours on my homework to answer each question thoughtfully and bring it back to my project.
I left a star off because of the community -- I received a grade of 84%, and didn't receive any feedback that was useful over 4 pretty significant assignments. peers would give me 3/5 points -- the lowest you can get and get credit -- and then tell me my project was great. one peer assessed my work at 70% and then told me my work was good and very detailed. the user experience of assessment should have the justifications for points right next to the question rather than leaving feedback for the end -- they should be encouraged to explain which parts of the rubric were not fulfilled and it would be even better if they were asked to offer suggestions that would get full marks, too. the grading was useless to me other than telling the robots I was participating, and I was left to figure out the course as it related to my work completely on my own.
overall, the content is absolutely on point -- the community needs better UX.

I learned so many things that I know will be useful to me. The content was well organised and very well directed to students interested in the field of transmedia storytellin. I also found the assignments very well structured, they pushed me to think creatively and to actually put my ideas to the test. In the end the course made me realise how much possibility there is in this field, as well as helped create a general plan for my project. The only thing I would have loved to see in this course is feedback form the profesors, as that would solidify my knowledge much better, although I know that's hard to achieve in this kind of platform, I think it would level up the course, if anything at least for the paid track.Overall a really great course! I would definatelly recomend it!

I really enjoyed this course. I believe the content is really great and the way it is developed and told is also very interesting. Great professors and good real life examples. The reason why I chose to put a 4 instead of a 5 is that I found the system where the peers evaluate your work quite unfair. The four assignments where very elaborate and I believe that this kind of evaluation is too subjective. I didn't have a good experience with it. I know it's more difficult, but I believe it should be done by a professional, and like this avoid final grades being subjective, uneven and unfair. Otherwise, the whole course is super! Great way of entering the world of transmedia storytelling.

Some Coursera courses are too light on information, and this was not the case here. I found this class to be really dense with information and a variety of perspectives. Overall I found the resources provided to be interesting and topical, though some are beginning to feel a bit out of date, with how fast technology moves. I finished the course in one month and it was definitely worth the cost of one month of a Coursera subscription.
4 stars only because some of the links to additional resources are broken or no longer accessible and because some of the linked resources are starting to feel dated. Otherwise, would recommend this course if it is a subject you're interested in!

El curso es bueno, extenso y sobre todo muy bien enriquecido por testimonios desde todo tipo de áreas, en boca de profesionales que se desempeñan en la narración transmedia. Creo que lo más interesante es la amplitud de perspectivas y experiencias que ofrece en torno a la participación activa de públicos. Aunque, por supuesto, sería deseable mayor nivel de profundidad en las explicaciones de los videos alrededor de ciertos temas que apenas son abordados como la realización específica de una etnografía o la conceptualización de un workshop con un grupo focal. Pero como introducción a la conceptualización de una idea que pueda proyectarse de modo transmediático está muy bien.
A very complete course, with a lot of focus on Australian and US companies, but with great content and very well structured. What there are too many videos that some do not add value. And it would have been great if you had incorporated a map with the best transmedia studios by country. Still, I highly recommend it. I have been very surprised that the creation of content is so linked to USER RESEARCH, which is my profession, which opens up new and very interesting career paths for me. Greetings.

This course offers a comprehensive introduction to transmedia studies and practices. The framework of the course is well structured and it's easy to follow. The resources are fantastic with lots of advice and content provided by industry professionals. If you've heard of transmedia, but don't know what it is or how it's going to change storytelling in the future, take this course and find out.

It was a very good course introduction with the right intensity and knowledge tools to make a good start to building a transmedia project from your storyworld.
There is a vast amount of industry expert input and many, many resource materials for further development of your knowledge base and self-exploration.
