Course Description

ONLINE: The constantly evolving selection of streaming video services makes deciding what and how to watch video content quite daunting. This course, updated for 2023, guides students through the maze of technology, services and content available today to help them optimize the time and money they spend on streaming video. For those with a cable TV subscription, it will also help them decide whether and how to "cut the cord." Topics include: the basics of over-the-air broadcasts, streaming devices (e.g., Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV) and how both on-demand and live streaming services work. We'll cover details on connecting and using devices and services, and explore online resources to find content and choose services. Participants are encouraged to log their viewing patterns prior to (or during) the course to help them in planning. The goal is to empower students to create a personalized game plan for a more thoughtful, cost-effective and enjoyable viewing experience. | Lecture + Q&A.
