So, it’s 2017 and it’s time for Activists Writing Media once again! Welcome! In addition to course materials and resources that you see in the sidebars, this will also be a collaborative writing space that we will be using this semester. For the uninitiated, this collaborative blog is designed in WordPress – a platform that you will be using to design your own blogs. You will also be a contributor to this blog. But, I’m getting ahead of myself. We’re going to talk about all of this in class today.
Just a couple of things to point out. To the left you’ll see links to course materials (syllabus, course calendar, etc.); required books for the class; resources; and, links to some citizen/activist media sites. To the right, you’ll see links to our Facebook page and the Twitter feed that will display tweets using the hashtag for our class #ActWrtMedia17. Once you have your own blog up and running, it will also appear in that sidebar.
I look forward to a great semester! Here we go!
