Sobre este curso

Tangibility is being replaced by virtuality. Social media supplants the water cooler. MOOCs challenge the classroom.

This course is a colorful mélange of ideas, debates, inventions and stories of the visionaries and entrepreneurs who've created-- and critiqued -- the digital world – as we know it today.

This is an introductory survey course. It fits into early, foundational learning in various disciplines, such as Social Science; Arts & Culture; Business & Management; Communication; Computer Science; Education; Humanities; Law, and the informal studies of lifelong learners. No previous knowledge is required.

However, life in the 21st century is assumed.

Testimonios de los estudiantes

“The course provides a rich and diverse theoretical basis for understanding the changes in how society were taking place as I was taking the course. I was captivated by the interdisciplinary breadth of the topics, which enabled me to relate the contents to my own personal experience, and to my special interest in the social sciences.” - Pilot student
