In other words, at the end of this course, you will be able to understandsome of the key theoretical and practical issues surrounding the use of stillimage, audio, video in the public sphere. We’ll look at a wide variety of textsand use fundamental rhetorical and design principles to understand howand why the texts work in their specific contexts. As well, you’re work oncollecting still images, audio, and video—we’ll discuss pre-productiontechniques for each. Then, we’ll do post-production work with still image,audio, and video editors. Finally, you’ll work with software to get a sense of distribution, in print and online.

English 269 asks students to critically analyze the receptionand circulation of digital media texts while learning entry-level digital media software to produce digital media texts.
 English 110 is a prerequisite for English 269.
Late Work 
 I do not accept late work unless you have an excused absence and we've
discussed it in writing prior to the deadline
.Technology issues are NOT an excuse for late work. Plan ahead and anticipate that you will have technology issues ariseduring the course of the quarter. Give yourself enough time to solve them.
 Keep in mind that this course involves communicating with public audiences outside of the class. Consequently, youshould not include in your assignments content that you would not be comfortable sharing to a wide public audience.
Class Cancellation Policy 
 In the event that I need to cancel class unexpectedly, I will send you an email and ask the English department to put a noteon the door.
