I’m so excited to officially announce that Transmedia LA has created a Wiki. This Wiki aims to be an open toolkit for everyone in the Transmedia community looking into tools, services, and other innovative resources to facilitate the creation of Transmedia projects.
The Transmedia LA Wiki: http://transmediala.pbworks.com
We encourage everyone in the community to not only check the Wiki periodically for updates, but also add to the Wiki when you find a service or tool that has come useful in your work. To add to the Wiki just request to be added to the workspace at the upper right corner of the pbworks page.
Specialized knowledge is very valuable, particularly in this community. We are hoping that by sharing resources with each other we can open a dialogue of what works and doesn’t work, and avoid re-inventing the wheel as much as we can.
Right now the Wiki is divided in a handful of categories, but we hope to add more of these over time. As it stands today, in alphabetical order, we have:
- Game Resources: Includes a few basic game making resources.
- Publishing Resources: Here you will find info on self-publishing, e-publishing interactive tools, and resources for digital print assets.
- Social Media Resources: A bit self explanatory.
- Technology Resources: Under this category you will find info on Live Communication tools, Learning how to Code, Mobile App Development, and Website Creation Services.
- Transmedia Resources: Under this category you will find a basic toolkit to get started in a Transmedia project, more advanced production tools, and a list of audience tracking and measuring services.
- Writing Resources: Here you will find resources, programs, and grant info for writers.
Now, just to get you guys excited about the types of tools and services we have included in the Wiki (and that we aim to include in the future) I’m going to profile 4 awesome tools that are not only innovative, but will help you save an incredibly amount of time and energy when working on a project.
Hope everyone finds these tools and the Wiki useful. Please check it out and encourage others in the community to add to it. Find a permanent link for the Wiki on the Transmedia LA website under Resources.
