She only taught one lecture. The person teaching was a pH. D student named Colin Doty.

My grade: A

I got mostly A's on my paper but my friends who got A- got A's in the class. You don't need to be smart to ace the class. The work for the class might be annoying (i.e. blogging about the reading twice a week) but they are easy points. The papers are very doable. I recommend this class for it is interesting and you learn a lot from these doctoral students. I classify this as an easy GE.

Took this class as a GE during summer. Overall it covered a range of interesting topics regarding computers and humanities, e.g. social media and human rights, artificial intelligence, big data, crowd sourcing, etc. Readings were assigned each class (usually some online articles and occasionally journal articles), but are manageable. Everyone was also responsible for writing blog posts (usually 100-200 words in length) twice every week. No midterms or finals, only 2~3 projects, some class presentations and a final project which was a short analytical paper about a specific social media.

The topics are engaging and closely related to lives, so are the projects (one of them is recording one's "data footprint" - was actually surprising to see so many personal data leaked during daily activities). The professor was nice and willing to help. Considered minoring in digital humanities.
