CISC 335 - 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 workplace. Students work toward a definition of 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.
