ABOUT the Sample Student Projects

About the Samples

I’ve been assigning digital media projects since 2010, and I try to select at least two or three from each semester to share here as samples. Most of the samples come from one of the two classes I most often teach: WRTG 3020: Rhetoric of Gender and Sexuality and WRTG 3090/ATLS 3519: Storytelling Through New Media.

I frequently revise project assignments, so the samples you find here represent everything from short experimental pieces to polished final projects. They also span the range from “good” (B) to “excellent” (A), based on the criteria that went with each assignment.

I’m sharing them here NOT as models for you to replicate but rather as sources of inspiration for what kind of messages you can communicate through new media.

Quick Start Guide

You have a variety of options for how to sort content on this site, all of which are shown on the sidebar. But on this page I’ll give you a few quick ways to get started.
