One of the many resources you have available to you as a student at USF is a subscription to Lynda.com. To access this website, log on to https://my.usf.edu/Pages/Home.aspx (Links to an external site.), highlight the “Learning and Teaching Tools” tab, and click on the “online training (Lynda.com)” tab from the dropdown menu. If you are already logged in with your MyUSF credentials, you shouldn’t have to create any type of account to explore the content.
Take some time to peruse the vast library of tutorial videos available to you. For this week, focus specifically on finding an interesting resource on visual design. Once you’ve found a good video, post it in this discussion board along with a response (around 250 words) that summarizes the main ideas of the video, articulates how these principles could be best applied to visual rhetoric, and describes the role that visual design plays in writing/composition.
After everyone has posted a video, you should have a nice class collection of resources that should help you better understand some of the elements of visual rhetoric you’ll be engaging with for project 2. Use these videos to enrich your writing and understanding of how writers are responsible for more than just words on a page.
