Rhetorical Tradition

The Communications Department hoped digital technology could provide a way to make the media-rich offerings of this flagship course extend even further. Bonnie Jefferson wanted to make the audio and video clips of the great speeches and other examples she was showing the students available to them outside class for further study. To deepen their experience with these canons of rhetoric, she also wanted to integrate supporting information such as text versions, biographies of major speakers, and supplementary video and audio.
