This class was a deep dive into the technical, social, cultural, ethical, and economic aspects of new media technologies. First, I learned the history and theory of past and emerginign technologies, as well as the mechanics behind hardware, software, and networks. Then, I studied case studies of leading tech companies and explored essential new media topics, including topics relating to the implementation of Virtural and Augmented Reality. This class was an amazing introduction to the field of New Media, and it provided a great foundation for future growth and understanding.
In this class, I explored new media technologies, industry trends, and secrets to getting a job in various fields. Once a week, NMI introduced one industry professional to the class, who graciously shared their experiences and simultaneously provided networking and career opportunities.
This final course for my NMI Certificate called upon all of the skills I gained throughout my NMI journey. Over the course of the semester, I worked together with a team to build new media solutions that addressed the specific client problem of Moxie, an Atlanta-based advertising and marketing firm. Working with a team of other NMI students, I helped to develop the content for an app using and implementing emerging technologies.
I took two non-NMI electives to fulfill my NMI Certificate. Those two courses were 1) Technical and Prefessional Communication and 2) Digital Storytelling.
