Final Course Paper
The purpose of this writing assignment is for you to synthesize, critique, reflect on, and further explore an area of interest related to multimedia theory. Working with at least one reading from the course and at least one academic source you find on your own, write a short piece (4-6 pages) in which you investigate claims and implications for multimedia. You might look at how new media is being incorporated into technical communication or composition courses, how different modes of communication impact audience understanding, how digital games may or may not support certain kinds of learning, how narrative and multimedia might be used to communicate technical content, or a whole variety of other topics.  This assignment is worth 20% of your final grade.
