Program description

New Media

New media is described as the emerging and developing platforms (such as internet, mobile, network based websites, news websites, search engines, blogs, wikis, and social media) resulting from the convergence of information technologies, communication networks and the media sector. Traditional media channels such as newspapers, radio and TV channels are also converging with new media. These rapid developments necessitate the learning of new specialized skills in the new media field
