In the book “Writing & Editing” chapters 4 to 6 explain and discuss how to create a webpage from interactivity to spacing. There are tools to expand space, control navigation, set hyperlinks, correct and revise, format text, edit images, and the list goes on. In chapter 4, there is an emphasis on the creation of titles, but especially on making great headlines. The headline is the first seen on a webpage so it must be simple, have a shock factor to grasp the reader’s attention and interest, summarize content, and function as visual identity for following information. I was surprised the detail the chapter goes into explaining how to develop an ideal headline from what to omit to how to write. Another important tip was about hyperlinks and if a new tab is needed or completely different window should be used or even just using the same window all depending what information is going to be presented and how to manipulate the audience’s navigation through the website. Other interesting topics such as page planning, tone, website usability, and information architecture. In summary, I must make a plan of the website identifying hyperlinks, headline placement, data location, and the overall interaction between links, tabs, and pages.
In the book “Writer/Designer” chapters 4 and 5 discuss the use of sources and the use of all technologies needed for the designated purpose of the multimodal project. The focus of chapter 4 is how to find resources, cite correctly, the permission of use, and balancing one’s citation style. I believe that the difficulty is giving the reader enough information without being a mosaic of citations. This means the writer must prove a point and use citations to either to reinforce claim or use as evidence without the oversaturation of quotation marks. Chapter 5 suggests understanding all the programs one can use and integrate into a webpage to bring unique navigation created by the collaboration of multimedia diversity. Using more than one form of media allows for the audience to be engaged in more ways in order to gain a greater interest.
