Collaborative Project

The collaborative essay project will be worth up to 100 points, a change from the original point value on the syllabus.

For this project, you and your collaborator will select from your combined list of digital writing projects worth pursuing. Then you will pursue it. Originally called the collaborative essay, this project is designed with several objectives in mind:

1. To practice collaborative digital writing using a variety of Web 2.0 tools.

2. To critically explore an area of interest related to digital writing and digital humanities.

3. To write a blog post for this site that integrates words, hypertext, visuals, etc. that embraces the idea that words become actions.

The nitty gritty

The project will be due on October 29 in the form of a .txt file attached to an email to me. Both partners should be cc’d on the email. If your project (say, a mapping project) is housed elsewhere, your .txt file should provide background/framework and link to the project.

Your purpose is to work towards the objectives listed above. Your audience is readers of this blog–me, your peers, members of the WSU community, people interested in digital writing who stumble upon your post.

Your team will determine the project’s focus and form. Please submit a 1-3 sentence email describing the focus and form by end of class on Monday, October 6. I will post a rubric for you on October 8.
