This is Joshua Levine, a freshman at St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas. He's enrolled in a rhetoric and composition course in which he recently wrote a 1,700-word essay on the Dakota Access Pipeline.
After students handed in their essays, the course professor told BuzzFeed News he then asked the class to create a short presentation on their essay topics. He challenged them to use multimedia components as visuals.
"Each student was required to integrate — preferably to create their own — visuals for their presentation," Levine's professor, who chose to remain anonymous, explained. "Memes, tweets, and videos were encouraged."
