Jerz: Writing for the Internet (EL236)

Due: Ex 1-2 (Reviews and E-Newsletter)

  • Find the Seton Hill University entry on the website Comment briefly on two different reviews of SHU, and post one of your own. Save the URLs and submit them with this assignment. Length of review: at least 200 words.
  • Review something else online. Choose anything you like. Use ePinions, Amazon, or any other online service. Save the URL and submit it with this assignment. Length: at least 200 words.
  • Sign up for three different e-mail newsletters. To find newsletters, google for "e-mail news letters sign up", and then just add a word that interests you in order to narrow your results. Try to find weekly publications, since Ex 1-4 will ask you to review two e-newsletters. Save and submit the URLs of sample newsletters.
All exercises should be printed out and handed in. E-mail the URLs of the sign-up pages to me, with the subject line "YourLastName Ex 1-2".
