Welcome to COMM 3344. Web Design (Spring 2015)

How many times have you checked your text messages today? Do you have an account on Facebook, Instagram or SnapChat? Have you ever streamed a movie through Netflix or iTunes? When was the last time you purchased music on a physical compact disk?

Today, we are all part of the network. Our lives are more intertwined with new media than ever before. Emerging communication technologies are faster, more powerful, and thoroughly portable.

Though computer literacy no longer guarantees a lucrative job upon graduation, employers are still desperate for technically sophisticated workers. But computer skills are only one aspect of technical literacy. It is also important to cultivate a critically informed stance towards the Internet, personal computers, and other communication technologies that are transforming our understanding of what it means to be human.

This course simultaneously examines both the theory and the practice of new media.
