  6. 6. This is an unusual course. It does not consist of a body of content you are supposedto remember. Rather, the learning in the course results from the activities youundertake, and will be different for each person.In addition, this course is not conducted in a single place or environment. It isdistributed across the web. We will provide some facilities. But we expect youractivities to take place all over the internet. We will ask you to visit other peoplesweb pages, and even to create some of your own.
  7. 7. The course objectives are rather straightforward:* Develop skills in using technology as a tool fornetworking, sharing, narrating, and creative self-expression* Frame a digital identity wherein you become both a practitioner inand interrogator of various new modes of networking* Critically examine the digital landscape of communicationtechnologies as emergent narrative forms and genres
  8. 8. Codecademy is the easiest way to learn how to code.Its interactive, fun, and you can do it with your friends.
  9. 9. Coursera is committed to making the best education in the world freely available to anyperson who seeks it. We envision people throughout the world, in both developed anddeveloping countries, using our platform to get access to world-leading education thathas so far been available only to a tiny few. We see them using this education to improvetheir lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in.
  10. 10. We believe university-level education can be both high quality and lowcost. Using the economics of the Internet, weve connected some of thegreatest teachers to hundreds of thousands of students all over the world.
