This subject was previously known as Web Publishing.
This subject offers you a practically oriented, conceptually-based approach by which you can become more effective in written publishing via digital and social media. It considers how writing can accommodate the re-structured reading that comes from scrolling down, rather than turning a page, together with the non-linear flow that results from hyperlinking. In this subject, students engage in practical online writing tasks, while also gaining a clear understanding of how writing has evolved through digital forms of publishing. Key ideas relating to relevance, credibility, authority and utility in writing for digital and social media are also discussed.
