I enrolled in ENGL52 (Computers and English Studies) because I was curious to see how the two can be tied together… to my imagination, I would be writing essays on a computer, reading poems on a computer, and possibly analyzing some plays on a computer. To Dan Anderson’s imagination, we had to take risks and experiment on a computer, communicate ideas from novels and comic books onto a computer, and challenge ourselves with unfamiliar programs on our computers.
The art of digital literacy is much more exciting and interesting (in my opinion) than just regular English literacy. However, I would not have figured that out if it weren’t for the projects I was assigned this semester. Traditional English courses are important but a unique class, like this one, is what brings out the creativity and adds to the analytical skills of the students.
