SMM 110 - Writing for the Web


2 credits
This course will explore the unique constraints of writing on the World Wide Web. Our emphasis will be on discovering new graphic and rhetorical structures for thinking and writing which are best suited for the nonlinear environment of the web. This course will apply techniques of professional writing for real world audiences, both community-based and commercial, including text messaging, e-mail, community reviews and comments, web journals (weblogs or blogs), web pages, and communally-edited collections (wikis). Students will create or contribute to such texts, examine the conventions that have developed for each particular form, and reflect upon their cultural significance. This course helps students build confidence in their communication skills while also enabling them to think critically, consider the viewpoints of others, and effectively express themselves, all of which will benefit them in the classroom, in life, and in the workforce.
