Creative Internet Presence

Taught By: Austen Osworth

Section: A

CRN: 3235

Credits: 3

Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Wordpress, Pinterest, Buffer, Klout, YouTube? It's difficult for writers, artists, and others in creative fields to navigate the ever-shifting landscape of the Internet. As confusing a time as this is, the internet offers enormous potential to put our best work forward. In this course, we examine the titans of internet content creation and publication within the context of creative professions. Students create and maintain their own social media, website and personal brand with the support of the instructor and other students. Basic HTML is taught. Many .gifs are embedded. No web experience required and all levels are welcome. The course will be accompanied by a course blog/resources website maintained by the instructor. All readings, video clips and resources will be located online.
