A Digital Dissertation

[blip.tv ?posts_id=605661&dest=15981]

There are three types of digital dissertation. The first is one in which a dissertation written for paper distribution is stored digitally. The second refers to a dissertation that is mostly paper-based but has a supplemental media component such as a related video or other media. Yet even in this example, the dissertation is said to stand alone, without the supplemental component. Professor Kuhn wrote a third type of dissertation, one that was “born digital.” This means that it is media rich and integrates media with text into a cohesive whole. No component can stand on its own, since the media and text are used together to convey particular analyses and conclusions. For more information about Professor Kuhn see: http://cinema.usc.edu/faculty/kuhn-virginia.htm Other useful sites: Institute for Multimedia Literacy http://iml.usc.edu/ Institute for the Future of the Book http://www.futureofthebook.org/ Kairos http://english.ttu.edu/Kairos/ OurMedia http://www.ourmedia.org
