This article investigates the effect of using E-learning transmedia practices to facilitate foreign language acquisition in university level Chinese students. In particular the article refutes the stereotype that Chinese students are passive consumers of instruction. On the contrary, the introduction of the transmedia approach employing different media platforms to develop a participatory culture demonstrates that Chinese students are able to take responsibility in creating, sampling and remixing digital media for dissemination to their peers, who successfully navigate and comment on these multiple modalities to actively learn.
