There's no sense in lying. This class was nothing more than a semester-long waste of time.
The speakers were irrelevant to anything I care about or would care about, and while I paid attention, it's clear just by looking around the room that no one wants to be there, and if it weren't required attendance, no one would.
Despite my attentiveness, I learned nothing about new media, emerging media, digital media, or any kind of media from this class.
The New Media Institute would be better off scrapping this course entirely in exchange for something else, anything else.
