Reasons for taking this course

With the advent of printing press in 1600 Europe Entered the age of Renaissance. With the writing down of Rig Veda in 1700 BC the Indian Civilization entered its golden phase. It was writing or new script that was the cornerstone of all the civilations of the old World. More often than not the advent of new media has changed the world. Books and written word has been the most common media for a long time , so often it was not paid that much attention as a form of media but with the advent of television and later the World Wide Web the field of new media has seen a rapid change and growth. Over the last 20 years we have seen the advent of media like Facebook, google which can affect the world in a way that was not possible earlier. Consider the case of Fake news If google or facebook posts something that is not entirely true, majority of the planet will consume that information without any protest. so Mcluhan idea that media is the information is more true now rather than ever. The reasons for taking this course were manifold, I wanted to learn about the new media and how they impact human civilization. How does the old media interact with the new media. Are the impact of new media dependent on demographics? If so How?
