The sooner you begin the process of creating and publishing your website, the sooner you will identify any problems you might encounter and can seek assistance from me.
In order to make sure you understand how to create and publish posts to your blog, I encourage you to complete a practice post. If you have any trouble getting your blog set up or posting to it, please let me know ASAP.
Your practice post should address the following prompt:
In a well-developed 1-2 paragraph blog post, discuss how you think communication technology in general (smartphones, the Internet, etc.) and social media in particular (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) have both positively and negatively impacted the oral communication process, using specific examples from at least one of the essential elements of the communication process (outlined on pg. 10-13 of your Communicate! textbook).
You should also read and substantively comment on at least 3 peers' blog posts. This article gives a quick overview of how to provide good comments on a blog post.
Your post and comments are due no later than noon Aug. 25.
