What is T101 Media Life? Chelsea Patton

T101 Media Life is a course that opens your eyes to how prevalent media is in your everyday life. Previous to taking this course you may have little knowledge of the major role that media plays in your life. We learn that essentially we are media, media is everywhere & increasingly so as we speak. We learn how, where, and when media integrates itself into our lives, but the most important question we face in this course is WHY is media so prevalent in our lives– why are we so obsessed with our cell phones, MacBooks, facebook, twitter? In this class professor Deuze assesses these questions with a variety of explanations but he leaves the ultimate answer up to us to figure out. Mark makes the course intriguing, he showed clips about certain technologies I had no idea even existed, he does a great job of relating with students & explaining the topics we explore in class. T101 Media Life is an awesome course that gives you insight and understanding of not only media but also of life in general. I would highly recommend this course to those not only in telecommunications but in many other departments, I believe the information we are taught in this class is essential.
