My Intro to New Media

Tagged:

This class has been quite an experience for me. Usually I've managed to steer clear of any classes that required significant amounts of work that would be posted online (one class I took had a moodle requirement, but it was pretty light; basic summaries of the reading or responding to others' opinions on it). I think I should have taken this class as a freshman - In fact, I think all freshman should take this class. Maybe I would have gotten more out of the blogging, and been more engaged with the blog, if my academic habits weren't already so entrenched. (notice how late this post is coming up... that immediacy is one thing I don't like about the blogging. It's not something due in class, it's something outside of class that is really sort of nebulous.) Anyway though, I do think that classes should integrate new media better into the curriculum. Just not classes I'm in. Maybe if we start doing this sort of thing earlier it would be more effective.
As for the wiki, I posted my thoughts on it earlier...
