Key Steps

  • Read the “Collaborative Writing” chapter in Writing Memphis.

    • Canva
    • Piktochart
    • iMovie
    • Wordpress
    • Wix
    • Adobe Spark
    • Audacity
  • Using the strategies from “Collaborative Writing,” use the remaining class time to get to know one another, play with your multimodal tool, and plan for next week.
  • This assignment is meant to be completed in the classroom. The way your group uses that time is up to you. There will be no additional assignments during that week. I will be there to facilitate and troubleshoot.
  • Samples from former students are available on our course website.
  • During the work week, your group should hit the following milestones:
    • Understand the basic capabilities of the tool.
    • Create a sample project to show the class.
    • Develop an outline for the presentation.
    • Write a pro/con list for the tool, considering what kind of projects might work well in the format.
  • By presentation day, your group should be prepared to give an informational presentation about the tool and answer questions.



  • Presentation should be 10-12 minutes in length.
  • Printed pro/con list that considers how different arguments would work in the format.
  • Presentation is clearly informative.
  • Sample project shows the capabilities of the tool, without being extensive.
  • Group is able to answer questions from their peers and the instructor.
