Index:Writing in the Digital Age ENG 200
Throughout the course of the semester, we have learned about different ways to incorporate text, photos, videos, and other forms of media on digital platforms. In the age of digital writing there are many things to consider. There is the way in which we design our own website, what that website is used for, and how to add the proper visual aids in the process. Not only a website, but other platforms are being used to make this come alive. Throughout this Scalar book, you will be looking into my semester as a digital writer. This includes work from Prezi, Wordpress, YouTube, memes, and my own interpretation of an app/website called Storify. All of these platforms used has advanced my knowledge in the digital world. The way in which I designed my project is linear. Each path flows into another and it always leads back to the homepage.
The following video talks about digital writing. I explain what digital writing is, some of the central concepts, and why it is relevant. I have been able to look at this course as a whole and really be able to connect with what digital writing truly means. It is so much more than just posting something on a blog, it is about creating our own digital world in which we can call our own. It is up to us to stay relevant.
