Many of your course assignments must be posted to this blog (not a personal blog). The goal is to create a collaborative space to continue your engagement with materials outside of class. Additionally, for each assignment you are required to comment on a classmate’s post (see the digital sphere/classroom contribution page for details on this assignment). These comments should be thoughtful considerations, and are the place where you can ask questions about your classmates’ posts, respond to questions they pose, link to other visual media, or evaluate what conversations your classmates’ posts enable.
You are required to embed links in your blog posts to articles, definitions, and especially images, videos, and other web ephemera that are relevant to the assignment.
If you are new to using WordPress or blogging, don’t fear–we will discuss this assignment thoroughly on the first day of class, as well as go over what constitutes a good blog post.
See you all soon!
