ENGL 10430 Writing for the Online Age

Addresses the changing environments and situations facing writers due to the ever-increasing presence of computer and internet technology. Emphasizes planning and creating documents in a number of technology-rich situations. The specific content of the course will vary each trimester, with possible topics such as Internet Rhetoric, Writing With New Media, Literature, Hypertext and Other Media Influences, or Technology and Collaborative Writing. While students may be required to learn the basics of Web page construction through an HTML editor, this is not a course in coding or graphical design except as far as these subjects intersect with writing. Students may repeat the course with change of topic. Prerequisite: ENGL 10112 or ENGL 10115.
