I WATCH STORYFUL AND the New York Times every morning, learning how their editors decide to open pathways to deeper insight behind breaking news. Some of the information flow I see curated by those two trusted news providers give me ideas about the way we present third level learning materials. Things start with a topic that fits into a headline. Inside that section is the main story itself. The NYT often constructs a timeline as a separate piece, which is an effective narrative framework. Then a video clip appears in another part of the sidebar to the main story. I have seen videos that are actually one to four keyframes on top of an audio clip. Finally, there are reporters' notes. In my academic setting, these could be Study Notes. I like this transmedia framework and I learn from it, as I hope students can during the next academic year.
