Digital Communication and Practice
This course combines creative work of making digital objects (e.g., Twitter bots, animated GIFs, data visualisations, slideshow presentations) with critical discussion of online platforms as well as conceptual frameworks for understanding the roles digital media play in society. Our time is divided into two large units of six weeks each:
The second unit, “Digital media & configurable culture”, emphasises more user-friendly tools to create, remix and present multimedia work including animated GIFs, data visualisations, slideshow presentations and more.
