Learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to provide students with the theoretical and practical tools for creating a transmedia communication project. We will refer to concepts such as multimedia, cross-media and transmediality to clarify specific characteristics, issues and fundamental differences in order to identify the steps needed to design and implement a complete and original project. Examples and best practices will be used - especially in the English language - in the field of marketing communication, brand and corporate storytelling, journalism and public relations. In addition, the lessons will be enriched by the presence of professional testimonial, workshops and seminars with agencies and companies.


The course will address the following topics, using multimedia and digital products in the classroom, alternating lessons - or part of them - theoretical and practical - work groups - as well as some testimonials with professional guests, storytelling experts:
1. Introduction to the concepts of multimedia, cross-media and transmediality.
2. Introduction to storytelling: history, tools and practices between Italy and the rest of the world.
2.1 Storytelling techniques.
3. Evolution of storytelling in new media.
4. Transmedia storytelling: definitions and examples.
5. The 4 steps of a transmedia project.
6. How to communicate a transmedia project.
7. Designing transmedia storytelling for companies and organizations: resources and tools.

The oral exam will be distinguished by type of attendance, and it is mandatory as the written part and it can be performed only after passing the written test.
Once passed the written test - compulsory for both attending and non-attending - it will have to be integrated with the oral exam, according to the following indications.

For attending students it will consist in the exposition of a project work based on the conception of a transmedial project according to the indications given during the course and whose theme will be previously agreed in class.
