Abstract

This paper is the beginning of a research project which will explore the function and impact of Transmedia (TM) in Higher Education (specifically English Literature studies). There are several underlying assumptions that are being tested about the range of benefits to students of using this technology. These include: that TM deepens student understanding of the nature of creative expression (including literature); that TM deepens student engagement with the traditional literature they have been studying; that TM releases students’ creative expression; that TM provides students with insights into the extraordinary creative power of digital technologies; that TM deepens students’ sense of community (both within and beyond class).
