Choose the digital media you want to analyze (Pick something specific.) I would recommend that you choose a piece of media related to your Ted Talk project. For example, you could choose a website that relates to the topic. Or you might choose something like a video game or some other application that relates to your Ted Talk.

Analyze the media using what you have learned about digital rhetoric from the readings in the course. You will need to decide
what you want to focus on in your analysis of the piece of media. Some elements to focus on might include
*audience
*purpose
*layout/design
*other elements from the readings.

You will report your findings from
the analysis you conduct. Create the report in a digital format (web page) and create a link on your personal website for the report. It could listed under the section where you have samples of your work.

Choose the digital media you want to analyze (Pick something specific.) I would recommend that you choose a piece of media related to your Ted Talk project. For example, you could choose a website that relates to the topic. Or you might choose another piece of media that relates to your Ted Talk, like a video game, a meme, a posting/discussion, an online report. And remember to think about media that we access through our phones and other devices. So what you choose is pretty wide open. The focus on this assignment is to take a deeper look at the piece of media and use what you have learned through the readings for the rhetorical analysis.

You will need to decide what you want to focus
on in your analysis of the piece of media. Some elements to focus on might include audience, purpose, layout design. Also review the concepts we have been listing on [[http://falcon.tamucc.edu/wiki/SGarza/TheLanguageOfDigitalRhetorics | The Language of Digital Rhetorics]] and the [[How do reading and writing change in digital environments?]] pages. So a big part of this assignment is deciding how you want to focus your analysis.

You will report your findings from the analysis you conduct. Create the report in a digital format (web page) and create a link on your personal website for the report. It could be
listed under the section where you have samples of your work.

Follow the instructions in Chapter 6 of the Applen text. The only difference is that you can choose the digital media you want to analyze.

Choose the digital media
you want to analyze (Pick something specific.)
Analyze
the media using the Applen text and also pulling from the other readings in the course.
Create an informational web site that presents
the information from your analysis.

Please Note: For the exercises in
the Applen text, you will be working with code to create a website from scratch. For both the Personal Website Project and the Informational Website Project, you do have the option to use a wysiwyg (What you see is what you get) program to create the websites. These are programs where the templates are already set up and you go in and make the choices to set up the site. All kinds are freely available. Part of how you are graded will depend on how well you follow the digital rhetoric concepts you are learning about in the course. You can set up good or bad sites using either method - from scratch or from a wysiwig program.

Remember, you don't have to create the digital report from scratch using code. You can choose any program that will create a digital format. You can create the report
using the same program you used to create your personal website, but make sure to adjust the page so that the reader knows it is a report and not just another page on your website.
