1. Getting Started SPRING 2019

Welcome to EDC 534, Digital Authorship. This fully-online class will be sure to advance your knowledge and skills as a leader in digital literacy. 

First Meeting. Our first meeting was held on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at 7 p.m EST. Click here to join the meeting. With this overview of the course structure and design, you’ll have a clear picture of what to expect in just one hour. If did not attend the live session, watch a video recording of the meeting below. 


Course Website. We do not use Sakai. Instead, we use a combination of digital platforms including WordPress, Facebook, Pathwright and Twitter as well as other digital tools. Our outward-facing course website is: https://digitalauthorship.org. Here you will find details of the course readings and assignments.

Pathwright for Class Activities. As a busy learner, stay on top of your assignments by using Pathwright, which helps you prepare for each class. Click here to join our Pathwright. You will be able to see exactly what needs to be done for each class session.
