Blog Post / Homework Assignments:
Did you know that you can earn extra credit opportunities towards your final blog grade? It's true!
You can earn up to 10 points by incorporating multimedia to your blog posts. These extra credit points are added towards your daily grade. Each blog post can earn only 1 point. You may not retroactively edit a post.
This opportunity counts towards any blog assignment; however, multimedia should have a clear relevance to the context of the post.
Feel free to incorporate popular digital discourses: hashtags, Internet discourse, emojis, fonts, memes, screenshots, gifs, links, YouTube videos, music/sound, etc.
All content should uphold the values provided in our class environment, UA’s non-discrimination, and UAct policies in the class syllabus.
All content should be considered SFW (safe for work). This is the opposite of NSFW (not safe for work). Generally, SFW refers to content that viewing would not get you fired from work.
