A special class “Information Science and Media” (17 min. 12 sec.) taught by Professor Bin Umino in the Department of Media and Communications is now posted on the “Web Experience Video Classes” section of Toyo University’s admission information website TOYOWebStyle. Web Experience Video Classes are offered so that students preparing for the entrance exam can get to know the classes offered at the university.
At the beginning of this class, professor Umino explains that the term “Media” does not simply mean mass communication, but rather refers to a wide variety of information media. Then he briefly describes in plain words what “Information Science” is and the significance of studying Information Science in this day and age.
