In Multi-Media Literacy, students will be challenged to develop their skills in professional multi-media design. Throughout the course students will learn how to build, maintain, and communicate ideas through the use of web-design tools (Wix). Students will also learn best-practices in journalistic film design by scripting, filming, and editing video essays with their peers. Finally, students will learn how to communicate critical research findings through the use of info-graphics using online tools (Piktochart). Students will display their new skills by compiling a media-literacy portfolio online through their own personal blog/websites by the end of the semester. The blogs/websites will be based on pre-approved topics that students can select from. Each post/cite will be monitored before publication.
