Quarter Taken: Summer 2016 Submitted March 3, 2017 Grade Received: A

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.
