Course Description

Media literacy helps us understand, analyze and create media. While we rely on good journalism to provide accurate information, we also have responsibilities of our own in this media-saturated environment. We can no longer be passive consumers of media. We need to be active users of media, as readers, listeners, viewers and creators, so we are all better informed. Our goal is to help you do just that.

This course has changed my outlook towards media creation and use. The course was curated for the first time, and I would like to praise the commendable work done by the course providers. I enjoyed the guest lectures, the guests were well known media personalities with extensive media knowledge, it was a great experience knowing how they deal and think about contemporary media issues. Professor Dan's lectures were quite useful and he always presents the topics covered in this course with suitable examples, which indeed is a better way to learn the concepts and analyse them clearly. The weekly blogs were an interesting task, we got the opportunity to analyse the issues we personally find interesting, I would say this task made us actually research and know about our issues in-depth. I highly recommend this course since it is a very good way to understand the media we use particularly the web content and social media. One can learn new...

I highly recommend this course since it is a very good way to understand the media we use particularly the web content and social media. One can learn newer ways of fact finding and detection of faulty or misguiding content. Even if you aren't from a media background this course is helpful. Highly recommended!
