RHE 330C • Multimedia Writing-W
12:30 PM-2:00 PM
COMPUTER ASSISTED Digital technologies have introduced new kinds of writing and new challenges for writers. This course explores the demands of writing in new media, including Web sites, desktop publishing, and visual presentations. No matter how visually attractive Web sites and print documents have become, good writing remains critical. Nothing destroys the credibility of a Web site faster than poor writing. This course introduces the basics of Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and digital photography, but it is writing course, not a computer course. If you are looking for a course that teaches advanced computer skills, this is the wrong course.
The grade for the course will be based on shorter modules, your work in class, and the five projects. Attendance, preparation, and participation in daily activities are required. The course fulfills the upper-division SWC requirement.

(Project 3 and workshop: 20%
