ENGL 635 - Literacy, Hypermedia, and Modern Communication


Students in this course explore the relationship of technology and communication focusing on hypertext and hypermedia’s power to redefine literacy in the classroom and in the work place. Students work towards a definition of literacy and an understanding of its underlying technological basis. They trace literacy’s historical evolution from oral to pictoral and graphic to print, focusing on the noetic demands and impact of that evolution. With hands-on use of the technology, the course investigates the shift from paper-bound to electronic literacy, particularly as embodied in hypertext and hypermedia. Cross-listed as CISC 335.
