Is there a relationship between media use and attention problems? How do advertisements influence your subconscious? Can you become addicted to the internet and video games?

These are just some of the questions you’ll get no-nonsense, science-based answers to in this engaging course by world-renowned researcher Professor Douglas A. Gentile.

Prof. Gentile leads cutting-edge research on topics such as media violence, video game addiction, screen time and school performance, and the power of parents. An acclaimed lecturer, he distills his wealth of experience into 21 eye-opening lectures. As you progress through the series, you will gain the knowledge necessary to maximize the benefits and minimize the potential harms of various media on yourself and those you love.

You know how much mass media and video games are transforming the way we work, play, and learn. New technologies have revolutionized the world—in many instances, for the better. But as different technologies continue to permeate every corner of our lives, it’s important to be conscientious.

Now you can understand the science of media and its impact on our psychology. This series will make you a smarter consumer and a more active audience. And this course is a must-have for parents. As Prof. Gentile says, “It’s like knowing how a magic trick is performed.” You will leave the course understanding not just the “whats” of scientifically documented effects of the media, but also the “hows” and “whys” behind those effects.
