COMM 365 - Digital Media in a Global Context


Prerequisites: COMM 100 or COMM 101; junior standing or consent of instructor
Digital Communication is the fastest growing sector of digital media worldwide. As Marshall McLuhan predicted, the Global Village, as it is constructed on the Internet, is increasingly made up of virtual centers where people congregate and communicate, and where national and social boundaries disintegrate. From Kalamazoo to Korea, online environments draw millions of users and create virtual world and “dirt world” economies. This course examines online communication such as social computing, multi-player environments and other digital communication technologies in order to develop digital media literacy and to cultivate ethical digital practices.
