The big portion of your grade will be the successful completion of a web project for a specific client. Successful in this regard will partially be determined by your client. (We will discuss this more in class as the term progresses.)
The new project is creating a website that will house information to help college writing instructors (particularly technical communication instructors) understand accessibility and how to integrate accessibility into their online and hybrid courses.
In small teams or by yourself, you will be tasked with
- hand coding a design for the home page and interior pages (this means only coding two pages and then you can copy and “save as” for additional interior pages)
- gathering relevant information about accessibility and annotating that information (a resource or resources page)
- providing a concise and persuasive rationale as to why accessibility should be integrated into online writing instruction, as well as in other courses
- including some background information
- adding any other things that you feel is important based on your own research and discussions with the client
This project intersects with a project in Publishing and New Media. One of those assignments will be housed on this site.
