This course takes a hands-on approach to exploring reading and writing in digital (Web) environments. Students in the course consider ways that digital writing environments create opportunities for writers to address multiple audiences, to bring together visual and alphabetic texts and to involve readers in the construction of those texts. Students in the course will develop a variety of digital texts, including blogs, websites and wikis. Students’ work will be collected in an e-portfolio designed and assembled over the course of the term. This course is an elective for the English major and minor, the Writing minor, and the Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities major.
This course is an extremely hands on education into the digital environment. Through platforms like WordPress, Google Drive, Code-Academy and many other platforms I learned what it took and what to do to be effective and professional in an online narrative. You learn not only how to make a personal blog but also make it effective and easy for the reader to digest. By learning through examples, rubrics, tutorials and articles I found out how to be effective and professional in a digital environment.
