This class was one of the few classes I took at UCLA where I was able to just focus on learning new things and thinking about the course material rather than trying to absorb every little detail in the readings or lecture materials. Consequently, the class was very enjoyable, and I strongly feel that I have gained valuable and essential knowledge that has broadened my understanding of the modern society. One room for improvement would be to make the class a little more focused. It was great that the class was driven mainly through discussions, but I felt that sometimes the discussion digressed a bit too far from the main topic of discussion. I think it would be helpful if we were given mini lectures or some sort of "preview" that introduces the main themes and focus of the session before we begin discussing the readings. The group presentation of readings/articles was great. Overall, I feel that I have made the right choice in taking this class this quarter and I have definitely developed a new perspective in viewing the world I live in today, as well as in thinking about the future of our (digital) society. Again, I think I have definitely learned something valuable in this class and would like to thank Diana for a great class this quarter.
