Courses

KLN 0873. Media in a Hyper-Mediated World. 3 Credit Hours.

The Internet-fueled democratization of media creation has enabled anyone to be a publisher, and has given audiences almost infinite choices -- with both great and questionable effects. In a world of information abundance, it can be difficult to discern fact from opinion and truth from fiction. We need to know how to wade through this barrage of information with a critical eye, to be better informed and ultimately become creators of media ourselves. Media in a Hyper-Mediated World is designed to help students navigate 21st century media, starting by becoming active users of media, not just passive consumers. Students will employ principles of media literacy in analyzing and creating messages on a variety of topics using a combination of writing, image production, sound production and creative work with digital media. In order to become active participants in an information society, students will examine the factors that assist them in acting responsibly in media environments.
