Digital media is slowly finding its way into academia in the form of digital lecture platforms and textbooks. Traditional print media offers far less versatility than digital texts, which can provide audio resources, video resources, and interactive questions that paper texts simply cannot provide. The importance of digital media in academic spaces needs to be reinforced and developed in a variety of disciplines. Here, we reimagine the novel Dracula by developing a cohesive storyline and background research through digital archives, develop a Ted Talk in order to reach a wider audience through the digital media landscape, and build two online interactive textbooks through Top Hat in order to create a more comprehensive and engaging learning space.
