However, there are still scarce sources that have established comparatives analysis about tendencies of this phenomenon based in its geographical origin. Narrowly linked to digital technologies and within the framework of the participatory digital ecosystem,
the phenomenon is seen as a set of knowledge, narratives and practices that are subjected of being transferable and apprehensive. The present study contributes to the comprehension of the phenomenon of transmedia storytelling establishing a comparative approach among the theory and the practice exerted from both sides of the Atlantic, its transfer systems of techniques, narratives and
knowledge viewed from higher education.
