This is a site that is used by students enrolled in the University of Denver course, MFJS 2210: Introduction to Media & Culture, taught by Dr. Lynn Schofield Clark. Students in this class write brief reflection papers on readings and class experiences. They also produce video essays, entries for Wikipedia, and other fun and sometimes challenging things. To view some of the video essays students have produced on the role of media in society, scroll down or select the tag “videss” from the menu on the right.

Overall reflection: mostly work-related; personal communication secondary; entertainment third. I would guess my uses of comm media are quite different from those of most people. My uses this day are also quite different than my uses were a week ago, however. Then, I was on vacation and doing a lot more interpersonal communicating to make arrangements and also doing more entertainment consumption than working. Even on vacation, the communication technologies enabled me to do work-related tasks like reply to student emails, finish writing articles, and look at possible video resources to show in class. I do not know what I would do without my cell phone or laptop.
