Network Media.

Analytical Essay – Assessment 1

What can we do with online media? When hearing that question, it really makes my brain go in a million different directions. Endless possibilities, and all you need is a device and an internet connection. The easiest way to answer this, was to analyse and involve myself in the online world itself. Not watching from a distance, but getting my hands dirty and exploring. Discovering the endless possibilities of authoring, distributing and publishing involved in networked media. And ‘look(ing) at media as triggers for experiences and for making things happen.” (Gauntlett 2015 pg 7) The different apps and websites that could be used are endless, as are the devices we can access them on. Our need for these social media websites, and utility apps has slowly increased. And with this, the online media possibilities have grown alongside our dependency on them. As this need and want for them heightens, the more normal it becomes for us to be on them a lot of the time.



My Media Use Sunday The 27th Of March

  • Netflix – Used the Netflix app on Optus TV to watch movies for entertainment purposes
  • Blackboard and RMIT Library – Used the Blackboard website on the computer to find out what readings I had for my music industry class.  I then went onto the RMIT library website to use the search option to find the book I had to read (then selected the ebook to read online)
