The class here is a hybrid class, half in class, half online, and they spend a lot of time on things like the impact of social media and how visual communication is changing comprehension, all stuff I'm interested in.

I was thinking of getting it from the library and reading it, as some of the readings sound interesting.
I'm not a big fan of SF, but I can see ways that some SF movies could be an interesting part of the class. It doesn't sound like the professor knows how to make it one, though.
That's too bad. I think the impact of technology is a fertile subject. It takes a special person to screw up a topic that is so inherently interesting to so many people.
