ISM 101: Foundations of Interactive and Social Media

This course approaches the study of Interactive and Social Media through the analysis of interactive media artifacts (e.g. games, apps, websites, etc.) in order to develop a shared language for what are common components of all interactive artifacts. Students will also examine how delivery platforms (e.g. smart phone, tablet, interactive kiosk, desktop, phone) constrain and afford different interactivity. Students will conduct weekly product analysis along with a final project where they inventory and analyze all of the interactive artifacts they use in a 48 hour period. PREREQUISITE(S): none.
