Student Context

The first rule in media, and I believe it should be among the first in education, is to know your audience.

The Introduction to Cultural Anthropology class at Kansas State University (taught by Prof. Michael Wesch) put together a very brief video as a final project in their class last spring. This video describes priorities and realities in lives of youth. While the average age of the online student tends to be somewhat older than the on campus student, there are many similarities in the very busy and internet-digital lives we find among our more than 1,000 online majors at UIS who reside in 49 states and nine foreign countries.
