Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I had a choice between taking Group Communication and Discussion, Interviewing: Principles and Practice, Rhetorical Criticism, New Media and the Independent Voice, or Communication Technology Skills. I chose COMM tech because I was interested in learning more about communication within the technology sphere and how advancing technologies affect the way in which people communicate. Students should take this class if they are interested in the rise of communication technologies and want to see the results of their use of these technologies.
Some highlights of the classes were the labs. I know this would turn students off, however the labs really enforced what kinds of communication technologies we talked about in class. For instance, one week we learned about the rise of broadcast, cable, satellite, and mobile technology and how they led to the rise of companies such as ATT&T and Comcast. Another thing I learned was how to identify different computers that can be used for my personal computing needs. In the class we also identified different social media options and how they have adapted to fit the times.

Advice for students:
I would advise students who take this course to keep on top of their lab work. Make sure that they are done in a timely manner and usually the same week you learn about the subject of the lab. There is a textbook for the class and while I don't think you will need to read all of the book, I think that students should at least find the main points of the chapters to keep ahead of the class.
