The HTML decision-making report: Preparing students for the information age workforce
Computers and Composition Volume 14, Number 3 ISSN 8755-4615 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
The online writing environment offers a variety of innovative options for teachers of technical writing and composition. This is especially true in technical writing classrooms in which we prepare students for the writing they will do in the workplace. In this article we discuss how one specific genre of technical writing, the feasibility report, can be transformed by the online environment. As part of our discussion we describe how the online environment changes the nature of such documents, and we explain how collaborative student groups respond to the challenges and opportunities provided by the online environment.
