Overview

Online communication and digital technologies dominate our everyday lives, extend our abilities, and change the way we communicate with each other. 

From Digital Technologies to Social Media programme is offered by Curtin University - Curtin University - CurtinX.

This Xseries brings together three Internet Studies MOOCS:

  • NET1x will increase learners’ understandings of social media by looking at the ways networked connectivity let users become 'social'
  • NET2x further explores the way digital technologies and social media channels impact our daily routines and transform how we live, using people with disability as a case study. Learners will be introduced to the social model of disability and the ways negative attitudes affect digital accessibility and representation.
