i’ve been asked to put together a course in media technology management as part of a new curriculum we’re developing that serves the demand for media entrepreneurship education. as i’ve been writing away at it, i thought i’d reach out and see what you’d like to learn or think should be considered as part of the class. Here’s the intro to the course description that i’ve written, now you tell me what you think comes next. What goes into our two page description of the course, it’s goals, content, outcomes and objectives? What should a person know when they come out of this class?
Mangaging technology for production and distribution of media content is a critical component to the success of any small or large business in a very dynamic market area. This course is a broad survey that highlights several aspects of relevant technology from the perspective of the media entrepreneur.
Overall, the objective of the course is to invest the media entrepreneur with a deep understanding and appreciation for the role technology plays in each and every area of a media business. The course should offer a substantial experience for the student that wishes to take a hands-on approach to focus in information technology or operations from a senior level. But, the course is also necessary for all students who will act as entrepreneurs or in an entrepreneurial environment where technology is a necessity in all levels of operating a business in the media marketspace.
