Social Media Writing
Credits: 3.00Catalog #20801262
This course examines the rhetorical and publishing strategies used for innovative new media formats, in particular social media platforms. Students will look at the differences between linear and interactive writing, interactive publishing, and the role of the interactive writer. An emphasis is placed on the skills needed for quality storytelling via social media communication. Students will also learn how social media platforms can be used as researching tools (i.e. crowd sourcing), and they will implement social media research campaigns. Throughout the course, the students' writing and research work will be showcased as text, video, and audio stories published on their own Web/blog sites.
