Course Description: This course examines the trend toward mobile computing. Many people have stopped reading newspapers, watching television news and listening to news on the radio. Instead, they get their news on cellphones, tablets and computers. Moreover, many people are getting news first from social networks, such as micro-blogs, instead of going directly to a news outlet’s home page. This trend is especially true in the United States and Europe and is growing in China as well. The course explores what this trend means for news organizations. It compares social media in the United States and China and looks at how journalists are using social and mobile media to produce, distribute and promote news content. The course also examines the rise of citizen journalism: how everyday citizens are using social and mobile media devices to report the news. In addition, students apply these theories and concepts. Individually and working together, students use social and mobile media tools to report news and attract and engage an online audience to develop a professional social media portfolio.

Assessment: Group presentation (10%), midterm exam (20%), “A Day in the Life of Shanghai” project (20%), social media portfolio (10%), quizzes and class participation (10%), final exam (30%).
