Positives: The tutorials/labs allow us to flesh out concepts (be they practical or theoretical). The course also offers a good skill set offering students several options when it comes to considering job opportunities in media fields

Negatives: The lectures are generally weak and don't offer anything new beyond set readings or tutorials

My advice to future students is: I would say to take the more theoretical units seriously. Once you hit practical stuff like video or radio it becomes more apparent why you need that knowledge. Retain those notes!
