This course is part of the Domain of One’s Own project. As part of this course, you will build and maintain a personal website and compose with a variety of digital tools. No prior experience with web design or digital authoring is required for successful completion of course work. Your work will be published to the web and available to audiences beyond the class and university. Once you have completed the course, the site you have built is yours to develop into a personal website that might include course projects, a professional portfolio, resume/CV, blogs, etc.
On your website, you will publish a variety of major and minor assignments. You are required to pay $12.00 for a domain name through Emory (www.domain.emory.edu). You will install WordPress to your site, which will give you a variety of formats for presenting your work in the class. The digital tools will allow you to utilize different rhetorical strategies in multiple modes, while also developing your writing skills more generally.
