In this set you will finf the same slides than from the Masterclass in San Sebastian last year, but I have added some since I have been working with Robert Pratten, Transmedia Storyteller Ltd., where we focus on some game mechanics and specific preparation for a project using a lot of platforms and social media to be implemented in the tool named Conducttr.

These slides are meant for the students of the Master Transmedia at Sciences PO Grenoble, May 23rd 2012.
