ENG 304 Reading and Writing in Digital Environments
Course description through a student’s point of view:
This course enhances and helps develop a deeper understanding of how to craft an online presence. This is done not only through the reading of articles and discussion boards, but also through creative projects and assignments. Using tools such as Twitter, Eportfolio, and GIMP you gain a comprehensive knowledge of how to make and create media for the online world. You will also run a blog on the topic of your choice for the duration of the course.
Course description by the University of New England:
“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.”
Key things I learned in this course:
- Time Management of multiple projects at once.
- How to use a creative license.
- What common blog conventions to follow and which ones to stray from.
- Engage in an online community with media I create.
- How to edit online medias for others in a respectful manner.
