Subject: student hypermedia work

I'd like to ask interested list members to look in on my students' first
attempts at writing hypermedia (for a class entitled "Literary Narrative in
an Information Age"):


The projects themselves are listed under "beta tests" (as this was a chance
for them to get their feet wet before the end-of-semester project).

The specific assignment was to formulate a response to Doug Brent's
"Rhetorics of the Web" hyper-essay (in the current _Kairos_), while also
discussing hypertext and the WWW in broader terms.

I'd like my class to get a feel for the fact that they are indeed writing
for a "world-wide" audience, so comments from outside readers would be
greatly appreciated. Keep in mind, however, that this is the work of
students, most of whom are new to the medium. Constructive criticism is
welcome; flames are not.

I find the work of Henderson, Hunt, Kambic, and Moore particularly interesting.

If there is no mailto link from a particular student's essay page, send your
comments to me at mgk3k@virginia.edu and I'll forward them; likewise,
comments for the entire class may be addressed to me for forwarding.
