The IUB Observatory on Social Media (OSoMe) is debuting a brand-new undergraduate course on disinformation and social media entitled “Click Here for an Easy A: Social Media Manipulation 101”. We welcome and encourage enrollment from all IUB majors. This course assumes no prior knowledge on the subject matter and requires no pre-requisite coursework to take part.
Our course benefits multiple disciplines and is a very preparing and timely discussion of disinformation including tools to study and combat this phenomenon, its origins, and other considerations. We present the course in a way that we think will help students really make good sense of what a value-add this is for their coursework no matter what academic discipline they are pursuing.
