CMIS 4204 - Computer-Mediated Communications♦


(5 cr.)
Communication through outlets such as e-mail, instant messages, blogs, and text messages is an intrinsic part of our daily lives. This evolving form of interaction continues to progress; therefore, it is important to know how humans use media to initiate, manage, and maintain both personal and professional interaction. In this course, students use a historical perspective to trace the evolution of varying styles of communication, including the persistent recurrence of key concepts, such as links and threads. Students learn about the principal modes of computer-mediated communications among individuals and groups. They also learn select approaches and tools for specific applications. Students explore contemporary practices in computer-mediated communications and assess the implications of evolving applications and solutions.
Prerequisites
  • CMIS 2001 or MEDC 3001
