About the book Multimédia, Novos Média e Média Digitais 

Abstract: The book “Multimédia, Novos Média e Média Digitais” arises from the need to inscribe a set of concepts and principles close to the teaching of Digital Media in Portugal. Over the past decade, the national higher education accreditation agency, A3ES, has been called upon to intervene and evaluate all higher education, polytechnic and university, courses in the field of Multimedia. Knowing that we are facing a recent area, the result of several transformations that are far from having stabilized, we publicly present thought and reflection on the domain, namely pedagogical, in order to guarantee a harmonious knowledge base of the area in Portugal.
The book included inputs from several specialists in the field of Digital Media: Lídia Oliveira (communication), António Coelho (technology), Claudia Giannetti (media art), Vasco Branco (interaction design), Pedro Mota Teixeira (animation and VFX) , António Sousa Dias (digital sound), Nuno Otero (social media), Jorge dos Reis (communication design and Ruth Contreras (digital games).
