Insightful, Thought Provoking Videos about Transmedia Storytelling

Here are some videos about transmedia storytelling. A few of the videos tend to be more focused on marketing of products using transmedia but could transmedia be used for learning and instruction? There is one video of an experience of students in Florida that does link it to education and one about using it for training within corporate organizations. How can transmedia storytelling be used to propel learners into an immersive experience that helps them retain knowledge and change behavior?

Henry Jenkins recently published his Seven Core Concepts of Transmedia Storytelling from his talk at the Futures of Entertainment conference.

    Transmedia storytellingrequires the same planning. You have to know your audience and what will resonate to get them excited to participate in the conversation.
