The course premise seemed interesting when I was picking out my People Unit, as it aligned with my degree. However, my tutor did not seem prepared to teach a course on cyberlanguages at all, and seemed to barely understand the concept of memes and pop culture. Our assignments were weirdly specific and not explained well to us. I thought as a People Unit, the tutors would be more accommodating and brief individuals from different faculties as to how to adapt to the writing styles of the LING department. I was wrong. I felt underprepared for the assessments. Overall, very dissapointed and would not recommend. Pick another People unit.

This course was really fun, a very interesting look into the changes effected by the digital age. Overall the work load was reasonable and fun (you get to make up memes)! I found the readings generally far better than the usual dry academic writing standard we are used to for most subjects. Deanna was an awesome course convener and tutor.
