Digital Culture/clutter: Life and Death on the Net

Sheizaf Rafaeli, Romi Mikulinsky, IsraelX

Acquire a conceptual toolkit to navigate the high waters of cyberspace as you learn about the pains and gains of the net.

Tangibility is being replaced by virtuality. Social media supplants the water cooler. MOOCs challenge the classroom.

This course is a colorful melange of ideas, debates, inventions and stories of the visionaries and entrepreneurs who've created-- and critiqued -- the digital world - as we know it today.

This is an introductory survey course. It fits into early, foundational learning in various disciplines, such as Social Science; Arts & Culture; Business & Management; Communication; Computer Science; Education; Humanities; Law, and the informal studies of lifelong learners. No previous knowledge is required.

However, life in the 21st century is assumed.

What will you learn

  • Understand and intelligently discuss and predict digital life.

  • Based on your newly gained knowledge, form your own opinions about whether and how much Privacy, Center, Distance, Time and Death, the Book and the Classroom are dying.
  • Answer the question, is the Net fulfilling its promise?
