"Contrary to the old adage about finding new names for old things, Writing Online: Rhetoric for the Digital Age gives new life and new meaning to old names. The book and its companion website transform ancient rhetoric as a process of oral composition—invention, arrangement, memory, style, and delivery—into a digital rhetoric, a dynamic process of writing for the World Wide Web: dynamic because it shows not only how to write in a Web-based medium but, more importantly, how to learn and adapt to a medium that is constantly evolving and changing. Unlike conventional books that provide specific solutions to specific problems, Writing Online reenacts the process of solving Web-based writing problems, explaining everything from how to create a simple web page to how to develop a sophisticated content management system and everything in between: HTML, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and much more. As a digital rhetoric, moreover, Writing Online recreates the ancient processes of oral composition for a digital era. Digital invention becomes a push-pull process of transmitting information via searches, alerts, news aggregators, and read-write algorithms. Digital arrangement becomes a question-and-answer process inviting multiple responses via intuitive navigation systems and dynamic patterns of organization. Digital memory transforms the ancient memory palace into a dynamic, programmable content management system. Digital style provides computer-based tools to enhance writers’ word choice, argumentative structures, and feedback. Digital delivery resituates speakers and writers in onscreen environments that balance functionality and aesthetics for optimum responsiveness and usability." —James P. Zappen, Professor, Department of Communication and Media, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

For scholars interested in the intersection of writing and online instruction, Writing in Online Courses: How the Online Environment Shapes Writing and Practice examines both the theoretical and practical implications of writing in online courses. The essays in this collection reflect upon what the authors have learned about the synergistic way that writing helps to shape online instruction and how online instruction helps to shape the writing process. While many educators continue to question the reasons for teaching online, these essays demonstrate the useful ways in which it enhances and informs student writing and learning. From the vantage point of different disciplines, the authors examine how the writing process is revealed and changed when it is placed at the center of an online learning environment. These scholars and practitioners attest to the multiple ways that teaching online has enabled them to rethink how writing functions in their classes, allowing them to pursue educational goals and student outcomes that may have been more difficult or even impossible to pursue in the traditional classroom.

Winner of the AIA Book Prize for a research monograph in the field of English Language and Linguistics (2016) Common patterns of interactions are altered in the digital world and new patterns of communication have emerged, challenging previous notions of what communication actually is in the contemporary age. Online configurations of interaction, such as video chats, blogging, and social networking practices demand profound rethinking of the categories of linguistic analysis, given the blurring of traditional distinctions between oral and written discourse in digital texts. This volume reconsiders underlying linguistic and semiotic frameworks of analysis of spoken and written discourse in the light of the new paradigms of online communication, in keeping with a multimodal corpus linguistics theoretical framework. Typical modes of online interaction encompass speech, writing, gesture, movement, gaze, and social distance. This is nothing new, but here Sindoni asserts that all these modes are integrated in unprecedented ways, enacting new interactional patterns and new systems of interpretation among web users. These "non verbal" modes have been sidelined by mainstream linguistics, whereas accounting for the complexity of new genres and making sense of their educational impact is high on this volume’ s agenda. Sindoni analyzes other new phenomena, ranging from the intimate sphere (i.e. video chats, personal blogs or journals on social networking websites) to the public arena (i.e. global-scale transmission of information and knowledge in public blogs or media-sharing communities), shedding light on the rapidly changing global web scenario.

How to Write an Online Course: From concept to completion one step at a time is not intended to be an actual how-to guide to developing an online course. Rather, it is a journal of one writing teacher's exploration of a new and better way to help aspiring authors write, publish, and promote their nonfiction books. When I started blogging about my first tentative steps down the path of writing an online course, it was not my intention to combine the posts into a book. By the time I reached Blog # 48, however, I realized that these musings might be of help to others who are starting from scratch as I was. There is a steep learning curve for the uninitiated. For adult students, who may be new to online learning, their first experience may seem confusing and overwhelming until they learn their way around this unfamiliar terrain. For educators, writing and facilitating an online course requires lots of time; knowledge of the subject matter, learning styles, presentation techniques, and e-learning technology; as well as the psychology of keeping students interested in the material and motivated enough to remain in the course. Sometimes, that is the greatest challenge.

Online Teaching and Learning shows how learning through the internet depends on complex human interactions for success. The text uses sociocultural theory as its foundational stance to empirically examine the dynamics of these interactions. It seeks to understand meaning making in all of its social, linguistic and cultural complexity. Each chapter examines how it is that culturally and historically situated meanings get negotiated through social mediation in online instructional venues. It extends the ways we think and talk about online teaching and learning.

As digital technologies continue to develop and evolve, an understanding of what it means to be technologically literate must also be redefined. Students regularly make use of digital technologies to construct written text both in and out of the classroom, and for modern writing instruction to be successful, educators must adapt to meet this new dichotomy. Exploring Technology for Writing and Writing Instruction examines the use of writing technologies in early childhood, elementary, secondary, and post-secondary classrooms, as well as in professional development contexts. This book provides researchers, scholars, students, educators, and professionals around the world with access to the latest knowledge on writing technology and methods for its use in the classroom.

Professional Writing Online is not a book, but an instructional website. It is the first course material intended for applied writing courses that makes full use of the dynamic capabilities of the World Wide Web. The flexibility afforded by the Web provides important advantages as a teaching tool over conventional textbooks. A short handbook functions as a guide to using the site, but the website itself is completely autonomous, intended to be used on its own as an instructional resource for professional writing. PWO offers four primary points of entry, which correspond to the four major sections of the site: Projects, Documents, Principles, and Resources. The Projects provide activities and exercises for inside and outside of the classroom. The Documents section provides a wealth of real-world examples of a variety of document types. The Principles section offers explanations of the topics that are integral to an applied writing course. The Resources section provides teachers and students additional materials that will be useful in the teaching and practicing of writing on the job. These sections, of course, are interlinked so students can move back and forth among the sections to find what they need in focusing on a particular topic. Overall, Professional Writing Online provides far more material than a conventional textbook, and provides additional links to an abundance of related material on the World Wide Web.

Journalism Online tackles the pressing question of how to apply fundamental journalism skills to the online medium. It provides an essential guide to the Internet as a research and publishing tool. In particular, it examines how to forge key journalism skills with the distinctive qualities of the World Wide Web to provide compelling web content. Trainee and practicing online journalists will learn: - core journalism skills of identifying, collecting, selecting and presenting news and information; - multimedia skills such as audio recording and editing; - online research methods including use of search tools, newsgroups and listservs; - story construction and writing for the Web; - an introduction to HTML; - web site design for the effective use of content. Journalism Online takes the best of the 'new' and 'old' media to provide an essential primer for this emerging discipline. Leading web designers such as Jakob Nielsen rub shoulders with established journalists like Harold Evans in the search for clear guidance in this rapidly developing field. It also provides a useful insight for non-news organisations into how to prepare and present effective web content and avoid the deepest pitfall of the online world - being ignored. Supplementary resources can be found on the book's supporting web site www.journalismonline.co.uk, which features additional exercises, useful links and reviews.
