ADPR 6931 - Claystation
I recently finished up an AD/PR course in Emerging Media.  Overall the experience was worthwhile.  Prior to the course my use of emerging media was limited to going on Facebook and the buying and selling stuff on eBay.

                Not only did I learn from the instructor but my classmates as well.  As emerging media is constantly, for lack of a better word, emerging it is tough for anyone to keep up.  Having multiple sources of people interested in the subject definitely provided insight that I wouldn’t have received otherwise.

                Probably the best part of the course for me was the number of professionals that came in to speak with us.  It is nice to know what is being used by those working in the advertising and marketing industries.  The professions are very much involved in the creative side of doing business and they would know what is hot and what is not. 

                The course also left me with an interest of expanding my use of emerging media.  I went in wanting to know how to use some of the tools available to me and I got just that.  I never thought of myself as the type to use social media for anything more than a way to keep up with friends and family.  I am now able to tap into the resources of a wide range of likeminded individuals that I would not have been exposed to otherwise.  Being able to join into the conversation that is going on in web 2.0 will only serve to keep me I the loop and up to date, making me marketable as an individual.
