    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is interesting and not too difficult, and can be used as a GE. The exams are actually papers, which is an excellent trade off, including the final. All the sides are paced online which is very helpful for studying or if you sleep through a class. The course also requires a book called The Shallows with is a short, eye-opening read on how technology is changing our brains' functioning. You have one quiz a week covering a chapter or two from the book and lecture notes. Super simple course, informative but doesn't require a large amount of work.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about the basic history of communication between humans and the tools we used to do so. Super basic outlines, nothing too in depth or techy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do the readings - they may seem little, but miss enough .5 points on quizzes and they can add up.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoy Melissa's teaching style. This course in particular is "distance enhanced" which makes it much easier for a busy schedule and able to keep up by looking back at notes and slideshows.

    Course highlights:

    I have always been interested in the history of communication, but this course really sealed the deal. From the very beginning with cave drawings to the internet, I really enjoyed all the content. We read "The Shallows" and were quizzed on it weekly. It was very cerebral and I actually read it due to the ease of the writing.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do all the quizzes! Only 3 points each, but it is the majority of your grade. Also, no exams! So put effort into the 3 papers throughout the semester.

    The class follows a timeline of how humans learned to communicate from written, to spoken, to digital. It's pretty interesting to see how our methods of communication have evolved over time.

    As with every course, go to class. If you do, it should be pretty easy for you to pull out a good grade.
