Digital Capstone Project Abstract

Local Atlanta Bands Abstract Local Atlanta Bands is part of my digital capstone project for English 4320. It aims to highlight emerging indie music coming on to the Atlanta scene. The rhetorical choice of the blog is short, easy to read profiles of bands that is intended to be read on-the-go, or if the reader only has a few minutes (mostly due in part to readability online slowed by 30%). It utilizes multimodality and provides the reader with pictures, videos, sound clips, links, and basic band information. I started the project for Dr. Holmes’ Digital Writing and Publishing course last spring, and decided to continue the project. I am proud of the work I put into my project, and I hope the audience enjoys what I’ve produced. Local Atlanta...

Digital Capstone Project Proposal

Digital Capstone Project Proposal (Abstract) For my digital capstone project, I will be expanding upon a previous project I started for Dr. Holmes’ course, Digital Writing and Publishing, in the spring of 2015. For the course, I created a WordPress site, a blog that I called Local Atlanta Bands. I started the blog in an effort to highlight up and coming indie bands in the local Atlanta area. My audience for the site is mainly focused on college students and for people of the ages of 18-30 years of age. This audience is not limited to this age group, but I intended it to be for young people. I started the blog because I believe that Atlanta is a great, and growing, place for the indie music scene. For the digital capstone project, I plan on expanding posts by adding more content. I also plan on conducting more interviews with musicians of the Atlanta scene as well as reaching out to some other music blogs based in Atlanta. The purpose of the blog is to educate the public on the music scene in Atlanta. Places like New York and Los Angeles have long been regarded as the musical hubs of the United States and Local Atlanta Bands will argue for Atlanta’s scene. The content of the blog will incorporate several different elements. I will include many visuals, audio and video clips, and will attempt to include more interactive elements to the site (instead of a static page). Since the content will be a WordPress blog that is hosted online, the text will be short, easy to digest content that...

Digital Capstone Composition Proposal

Abstract After exploring Rachel Hulin’s “Hey Harry Hey Matilda” on Instagram and through her website, I was enamored with the idea of developing a novel for the web. Jessica and I plan to write our own narrative for the web; like “Hey Harry Hey Matilda,” the narrative will be available as installments on Instagram and as a navigable website. The website will be my primary focus, as Jessica will be developing her narrative through Instagram. I had originally planned to use Tumblr, but after exploring the site, I believe a WordPress site would create the brand recognition I’m looking for. During my time in entrepreneurship courses, I have been disappointed to find that the creative aspect of marketing is often lost in the search for a profit. Today’s marketing is product and service driven. I want to create a brand that does not necessarily exist to turn a profit; although Jessica plans to continue working with this project after graduation, my goal is to build a space online that allows users to engage with our novel. This digital space will create brand recognition by disrupting the way people are used to reading; it will provide information regarding the novel and its content, but it will force readers to be active participants in the brand. My audience will be Dr. Wharton and other faculty in the Rhetoric and Composition concentration. Instead of using this project as a chance to demonstrate my writing skills, I would like to demonstrate my ability to create appropriate content for the web and to build an online platform that appeals to an academic audience.
