The Humber Transmedia Fellowship
Now in its third year, the Humber College Transmedia Fellowship brings together students from across multiple programs in a collaborative effort to create an interactive multi—media story—telling project.
The Fellowship reflects the commitment of the School of Media Studies & Information Technology to provide students with innovative learning opportunities to prepare them for the challenges of storytelling in a rapidly changing digital landscape.
During the creation of the project, the students develop the skills to work rapidly and effectively in a production team. In executing the project, final testing allows the production team to understand how audiences interact with this multi-platform content, generating valuable research towards future initiatives.
Managed by a faculty member, the core team of the Fellowship develops the concepts and content for the project, and Humber web development students then join the team to execute the vision.
The work you see here was completed in fourteen weeks, from seed-of-a-thought to user testing and launch. We are very proud of their accomplishments.
If you have feedback or questions, we would love to hear from you:
