Delhi University introduces new course

A new 30-hour credited course in media basics has been launched by the Cluster Innovation Centre (CIC) at Delhi University.
The idea behind starting the course is to create awareness among students about communication and how it is handled through TV channels, print medium and online. The course also deals with the importance of ethics in media. The BTech in humanities already includes a course in journalism and now the media course has been added. The new course is open to all students of CIC. The course will focus on electronic media and improve presentation and communication skills of the participants. The areas that would be covered would include social broadcasting, understanding TRPs, environment and wildlife programming, sports production and art of video editing. Students would get credits for the course. The course will be taught by industry experts and faculty from CIC. Classes would not be conducted in the chalk-and-talk mode but would be interactive. On completion, students would be awarded a certificate.
