  1. New Literacies Being literate…on the internet! By: Jennifer Katz Kristen Linaman Kaley Powers http://online.nfcc.edu/

  2. Online Communication • Examples: • E-mail: Instead of attending assigned office hours of your professor you can use e-mail to ask questions at your convenience. • Instant Messaging: Chat instantly over internet programs (AIM, Facebook, etc.) with your peers or teachers to discuss group projects or general assignments. This is an example of a AIM chat box.  http://www.file-extensions.org/box-file-extension-aim-aol-instant-messenger-boxely-file

  3. Online Testing • Universities use internet programs such as Desire2Learn (D2L) to administer quizzes and exams. • This method is different from the past because you can access these assessments at your own time. • It is easier for teachers because most of these tests given are automatically graded using this system. (Instant feedback) • Students can also use their notes, giving them better grades while still learning the material.

  4. Assignments • Students are able to access their homework and notes online. • If a student misses class they are able to obtain most to all of what they missed by accessing the class website. • Due dates are posted keeping students on track with their work. • They can also use online resources through their school’s library. http://www.brookes.ac.uk/studying/learning/online

  5. GOING GREEN! • Submitting lengthy paper and assignments online or via e-mail to professors saves money on paper… and trees! • In large lecture halls professors are able to post the syllabus and readings online instead of printing out hundreds of copies. • Saving Gasoline: Instead of driving miles to school to go hand in homework one may do so online.
