Media in the Online Age Revision Class

Hi everyone

In our revision class today I’d like to go through the following four questions and ensure that everyone feels confident in how to answer them:

  • How have online media developed?
  • What has been the impact of the internet on media production?
  • How is consumer behaviour and audience response transformed by online media.
  • To what extent has convergence transformed the media?

You need to have significant research on at least two different media in order to fully answer the exam question. In addition, an understanding of past, present and future issues.

Today you will ensure you have a detailed document on each of the four prompts above. This blog has a lot of relevant research already here for you but it is also vital that you have your own.

To help, here are some useful sites that I use that explore Media in the Online Age as well as other issues relating to technology.
