In the professional writing field, a lot of content is produced and published online. This course prepares students to analyze, develop, and design online content. Together, the class will develop a rubric to analyze websites. They’ll learn the purpose and significance of site maps and they will create three websites throughout the semester. Students will use web site builders (i.e. WordPress) and work their way up to coding with HTML and CSS. Through service-learning practices that include hand-coding a website with HTML and CSS for a client, students will develop skills that will make them marketable and relevant in the job market. Projects will be client focused and include service learning projects for area non-profits or government agencies.
