The evolution of new technologies allows the development of transmedia narratives that pose new challenges in the education of the Visual Arts. To design audiovisual projects with transmedia vision involves developing capabilities to: designing multimodal projects, project a coherent conceptual and visual universe, manage complexity, plan and coordinate collaborative work, critical knowledge of ICTs and think looking ahead creativeness. The experience submitted is the result of the coordinated work of two subjects in 4th Fine Arts degree, related to the itinerary of Design and Visual Arts at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Altea (UMH). The subjects involved were: "Methodology of creation and teamworking" and "Transmedia Projects". Practical experience focused to the development of a joint practice of both subjects consisted of collaborative design (team) of transmedia projects.

To carry out this activity has been used the following strategies:
a) to deploy a coordinated plan pointing to integrate knowledge and skills in in a complementary manner.
b ) We designed a joint activity in order to be developed by teams by using ICT: Blogs, online collaborative tools (Google online tools) and social networks (FB, Twitter, WhatsApp, ... ).
c ) It has been just a scheme to monitor the activity that combines classroom practices and monitoring virtual tasks.
d ) We have designed a procedure heading for an aggregated analysis evaluation, with the aim of coordinating teacher evaluation criteria, facilitate peer assessment and self-assessment of students in some selected processes.
