Pretty easy, overall.
The content of the course itself was extremely interesting. At the beginning of every lecture Wulfmeyer would present several current topics in the media industry, articles regarding everything from the release of Snapchat's Spectacles to the coverage of the presidential election. However, although the concepts of journalism were fun to learn, Wulfmeyer was rarely effective at teaching the concepts due to his tendencies to go off on tangents while presenting current topics. A vast majority of the class content, particularly what was featured on exams, had to be completely self-taught.
Throughout JMS 200 I learned the complexity within the modern media industry, and how much of an impact technology carries within journalism today. I found the various forms of media perception, modern mergers, and company developments fascinating to read about.

Advice for students:
Create study guides throughout the semester, take note of all clicker questions/their answers at the end of each lecture, take dutiful notes in order to easily study for each exam.
