¿Qué es converged communication?

If you’re reading this page, there’s a good chance that you came here because you have an interest in converged communications – or at least something on this blog about converged communications. What exactly does a person do in the Florida State College at Jacksonville Converged Communications program? Well, there are a lot of different things, including…

* Learning about the interaction of traditional media types with digital media, which is transforming today’s communication landscape
* Creating and formatting text, image, and video materials across multiple platforms
* Evaluating diverse messages from numerous formats (print, television, websites, online video, radio, etc.) to develop media literacy
* Applying communication theories to real-world situations
* Understanding the role of communication in business applications, including advertising, marketing, and public relations
* Studying the legal and ethical environment surrounding communications
* Managing popular blogging and social media platforms, developing their use for professional and corporate settings
* Recognizing dominant trends at the intersection of technology and business, and utilizing those trends for maximum effectiveness
* Writing, writing, writing: Blog posts, press releases, research papers, captions, ethical analysis papers, story leads, headlines, business plans, and so many more…

The Converged Communications program is one of the newest of the bachelor’s degree programs at FSCJ, providing students with the knowledge and expertise to build a career in marketing, advertising, public relations, nonprofit work, video production, and many more fast-growing fields.

In addition to the above, converged communications also includes the opportunity to do semi-random things on WordPress blogs, including HTML coding – as demonstrated below.

Here come different kinds of text: Bold, italic, underline, colored text, strikethrough

The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog, unless it didn’t. This could be an example of the “illusions” mentioned in Chapter 4 of Lev Manovich’s book, The Language of New Media. Also, foxes were considered carnivorous at last check, so the lazy dog might have been fortunate to avoid getting eaten.

The moral of the story: Even a lazy dog can be a lucky dog.

Looks like we’re supposed to add another image to this page, like this. Good thing it wasn’t a Lazy DogBurger.

The Converged Communications program also comes with the handy-dandy #concomms hashtag. If you see a #concomms hashtag while you’re out and about on Twitter, Instagram, or other sectors of the online landscape, take note. You’re probably reading about something dealing with life in the #concomms world. And if you’re posting something about converged communications yourself, feel free to add the #concomms hashtag.

For those who aren’t part of the Converged Communications program but are interested in learning more, FSCJ provides more details on its website. It’s just a click away.
