Welcome to #COM416

Dear Students:

Welcome to #COM416 Propaganda. This course examines the history, theory and practice of propaganda.


Our first synchronous meeting will be held on the Zoom platform on Friday January 25, 2019 from 12 – 1 pm EST. To join the meeting, click here and follow the instructions. You can participate in this video conference from your smartphone or other digital device.

For future video chat classes, we’ll try to schedule our Zoom video chat meeting at a time when most people can participate. If you are unable to participate in the synchronous meeting, you must watch the video and then comment and respond to the question prompts.

In this class, we do not use Sakai. We use several different digital platforms for learning. Each week, a new post will appear on this website with details of your weekly assignments. From here, you can access course assignments, view videos of our synchronous classes, and access student blogs. We use Pathwright to manage all class participation learning activities. Click here to join the Pathwright community and access the course materials. 

I will look forward to meeting you next week!
