Course aims
The overarching goal is to provide an overview of crossmedia communication and development. The course is interdisciplinary and introductory in concept and implementation concerning what crossmedia communication is and how it can be applied. The main aim is to develop a theoretical framework for understanding how crossmedia production works.
