Sobre o curso

Transmedia storytelling is the practice of designing, sharing, and participating in a cohesive story experience across multiple traditional and digital delivery platforms - for entertainment, advertising and marketing, or social change. Have you ever read a book, seen a movie, watched a television show, or played a game that centred around different aspects of a larger story or universe? You may be familiar with popular examples of such universes like Star Wars, Marvel, and The Walking Dead (to name a few). How do the professionals develop such expansive narratives? How do they ensure that each element stays true to the original story? How do they innovatively use different technologies to share the stories, grow audiences and create an active and involved community of fans? More and more, we are also engaging with elements or franchises of larger and more complex stories across a much more diverse range of platforms like interactive web experiences, social media communities, mobile devices, theme parks, and even augmented and virtual reality. A major challenge that current and future storytellers face is being able to engage different audiences in a story that is seamlessly told across all of these different platforms. WHAT WILL I LEARN? This course will help you to design a strategy for developing and telling your own transmedia story. You will learn about what it takes to: • Shape your ideas into compelling and well structured narratives and complex story worlds • Identify, understand, and engage different audiences in your stories • Create cohesive user experiences across different platforms • Evaluate existing and emerging technologies to share your story with the world, and help your audience participate in the larger storyworld you create The course provides you with a unique, authentic, and industry relevant learning opportunity. You will have access to current theory, industry examples and advice and undertake learning activities that will equip you with the tools you need to start developing your own ideas. WHO WILL MY INSTRUCTORS BE? You will learn effective transmedia design strategies from leading UNSW Australia Art & Design academics. You will also examine case studies that demonstrate how amazing ideas, technology and audience contributions can be brought together to create dynamic storyworlds. You'll see examples of major, successful transmedia storytelling projects involving movies, digital entertainment, gaming, virtual reality and more.

I liked the course, in the sense that they provided guidance and tips to generate and communicate that with the transmedia audience. But there are only tips and nothing else. They don't teach any technicalities and it gets more and more irritating and frustrating. They just keep talking about different plans and tips and each and every person gives some lecture about something and sometimes two of them give the same message. Its also very long and takes up a lot of time. So my tip is that if you are not interested in transmedia course and just want to try it for fun, don't do it.

It doesn't have a Scaffolding learning. So you feel that you know nothing and your face with tons of content, that you don't really understand. It's overwhelming. I feel it needs to star nice and easy, and start adding more after the second week.

I feel this course gives you a lot of tools but not many insights on how to apply these tools. It's as if you wanted to build a house and each lesson is about "how important a brick is for a house, you can't build a house without it", but it doesn't teach you how to build a wall.
