ENGL 165EC - Spring 2003,  Rita Raley



Regular attendance is expected and more than two absences will significantly and adversely affect your final grade. More than four absences usually results in a failing grade for participation. "Attendance" also means that you come to class prepared.



Technology Overview


  • The Transcriptions TAs for Spring 2003 are Tassie Gniady and Anna Viele; they will each hold regular lab hours and be available for tech tutoring during those times. Tassie will have lab hours TR 12-3:30 and Anna will have lab hours MW 9-12.

  • I have requested stickers for your student IDs so that you may use any of the Phelps Instructional Computing labs. Stickers are available from the U-mail help desk in Phelps 1523. Phelps 1529 is an open-access lab and a sticker is not necessary for admission.

  • Instructional Computing offers a series of free software tutorials. In the first month of the quarter, the Photoshop workshops are April 7 & 8; Dreamweaver is April 9 & 11; and Flash is April 10. The workshop schedule is also available online.

  • The Transcriptions computing studio will also be available for you to use, and a Transcriptions TA will hold regular studio hours. During these hours the lab will be open to all members of the class for web authoring and reading. The computing studio has a scanner, PC computers, and all of the production tools you will need to compose your project, including Photoshop, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, and a new sound editor from Sound Forge. There are HTML reference manuals and most of the texts in the Eastgate Library are also on hand for you read. The Transcriptions web archive also contains a great deal of information about web authoring.

  • Your final assignment for this course will be to contribute to a collaborative web project. To host this project, you will likely need a U-Web account, unless you have web space through your own ISP, e.g. earthlink.

  • For the basics of UWeb accounts, see the Transcriptions guide to UWeb.
  • Please note the Transcriptions page on "Evaluating and Citing Online Resources."
