The IIE-Vega CPT Digital Design 2nd-year students had the opportunity to collaborate with Digital Experience Design students from Fontys Academy in the Netherlands on a project. Students from both campuses had the opportunity to attend a series of online lectures presented by Anka Joubert, our Digital Design navigator and by lecturers from Fontys. They collaborated on a project to create a transmedia story campaign, based on Leonardo di Caprio's documentary "After the Flood", to raise awareness about environmental sustainability.
The groups presented their work to a panel consisting of the Fontys and Cape Town navigators. The work produced in two weeks and across continents, was truly impressive. Both students and navigators on both sides agreed that this international collaboration was an immense and rich learning opportunity.
