Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course will open your eyes to perspectives and insights on social media, platforms we use daily, in ways you never imagined. It is hands-on (thumbs on?) and engaging across multimedia from reading to videos to interactive components to discussion boards.
I learned a lot of psychological components behind why people engage with social media the way they do. It is truly fascinating to learn things like social capital and the value of networking and connections over social media. It provides useful perspective to my current and future work.

Advice for students:
Spread. It. Out. There are a lot of assignments that, say, require up to 10 Twitter posts or an entire Pinterest board. The worst thing you want to do is wait until Sunday night to find 30 pieces of content and write about them, post them, avoid spelling errors, etc. It has to act like actual social media programming if you want to get the full effect of the course.
