The instructor may select assigned readings and materials in electronic and traditional rhetorical theory and/or method appropriate to the project. The student will collect further readings and materials appropriate to the project.

All products will be published online in appropriate modes and formats, preferably on the student’s managed site (weblog, wiki, or CMS), or set of sites.

Projects can be traditional, research-based investigations using primary sources and resulting in a PDF report. Results and artifacts will be posted to open web spaces for access by others. Students will be encouraged to make use of web-based, social networking, and social media-based tools for both their research work and delivery, and to produce multi-modal products.

Appropriate projects will focus on the principles and practices of electronic rhetoric, and must be collected and produced for the project. Some pre-existing material may be re-purposed, but the majority of the work must be new.

Projects can be investigative or experimental. Some examples:
