Half way through the semester, students will take a midterm exam assessing their comprehensive of the digital keywords covered in the first eight weeks. The exam will focus primarily on defining and analyzing the keywords from the readings, as well as demonstrating comprehensive of the additional terms, techniques, and skills covered in the first part of the course. We will devote one class to reviewing for the exam, but the best way to study is to keep detailed and organized notes on all the readings. Use your notes as a way to distill, synthesize, and summarize the relationship between major terms and concepts. Essentially, the midterm will supply you with a set of terms and ask you to define and explain their relationship.
