i'm currently taking a Communicatin Theory course..
I have to say that i love this subject..
it's an eye opening.. in the class we get to discuss the media on so many deffierent depths.. we talk aboout history, future, economy, politics, and relegion.. its a free-discussion class...
in this particular class.. our lecturer Arch.Rusaila Bazlamit chose to teach us in new ways.. we entered the e-learning technology..
we don't submit printed researches or CDs.. We have an online network called 'Fusionists' ..this network shows our progress and speaks our voices..its our porfolio.
their we send our weekly assignment..we write reviews and feedbacks.. we upload our videos and photos.. for the midterm we had an assignment along with the exam, a video reflecting how new media affect us.
we read a very interesting book "THE MEDUIM IS THE MASSAGE" by Marshall Mcluhan a very interesting book that was written in the 60s and descrribes the new media of TODAY!
i would recommend anybody who is interested in media to read this book.
and a big plus for this e-learning is that its flexablie in all the dimentions.. we support the ideas with images, videos and sound.. and it even reached the time dimention.. we have flexable deadlines... did we ever hear about a deadline for any project at 12 p.m?? well, that would be ours..
i have to say that the new media is domenating nowadays.. its growing fast.. and weather we accept it or refuse it, we are part of it..
Thanks miss Rusaila for this opportunity.. we now FEEEL the media :D
