This class is an overview of computer-mediated communication (CMC) as it applies to the increasing range of information and communication technologies. The goal of this class is to explore issues in CMC and the role that it plays in collaboration, computer supported cooperative work, and the achievement of social life. We will then apply the results of this exploration to human-centered design of CMC systems.
