Hello, BA Broad 4! I welcome you to our e-class in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) – COMM110!
It has been a while since I last posted an entry in this blog. Originally, this is to archive some of my photos from a 50 mm lens (as you may have read so in the blog’s description before I changed its determined purpose). But eventually, I grew tired of updating and I almost forgot this blog still exists. Personally, I am happy to be back. This course have brought to my attention something existing which I failed to remember.
Information and Communication Technology – as a course – will help shade the gray areas of 21st century communication. This afternoon, we discussed about the danger of desensitization – I am afraid that we are all guilty of this crime. Through our continuous exposure to the negative stimuli, we already act out of habit, we feel numb despite the pressing issues laid before us. This is a sad reality. But as future media practitioners, you hold the key to change the world. You may laugh at this idea, but really, the world will never change if there will be no single person who is willing to shaken the unrighteous principles we practice today.
Individually, you will produce, upload, and post weekly Vlogs . Your Vlogs should receive reactions from your audience and should stir up a conversation. It should be fun and engaging; informative and significant.
Due: every Tuesday of the week at exactly 11:59PM. Late submission will no longer be considered.
