Writing a collaborative with a partner is not hard if everyone works well together and sends everything on time. My biggest problem that I had with my collaborative essay was my email did mot send my revision to my partner, making it seem like I did not do the work but in the end everything worked out. We were able to combine our parts into one great essay which I enjoyed reading and realize even though everyone has different writing styles, you could still combine them. Converting the essay into a digital form was not too hard since each section had a different title. The only problem I had, was finding the right image to go with each section. I believe that it is better as a digital version since there are pictures to go with each part making it more engaging to read. Instead of just looking at words you have images that correspond with the text. I feel as if the paper version can be really interesting but with pictures you could really draw people in.
Working with different platforms was an interesting experience. There both pros and cons for weebly and digication. The pros for digication are being able to add many different MP3 players, web linking is much easier, you could add different modules, change the css, and make as many left tabs and tops as you desire. The pros for weebly are being able to embed anything that has an embed code, being able to divide your sections, web link pictures, add columns, and create the website as you wish. The cons of deification were not have an option to add many videos or embed code if it is not supported, divide the sections, make columns, add a divider and web link pictures. The cons of weekly is not being able to add an MP3 player unless you buy the pro version, have as many left tabs as you would like, and change the css without buying the pro version. I enjoyed working in both platforms and both weekly and digication are great platforms when making website. If I had to choose between weebly and digication, I would have to go with weekly. The reason why I chose weekly is that fact you can divide everything without having to make many different left tabs especially if you are adding a ten page essay. You can fit the whole essay by dividing and putting the words in columns. I do wish that free version of weekly would allow MP3 players instead of having to put a YouTube video.
Digital rhetoric according to what I have done is being able to present a material in any matter. The way you present is way you believe will attract others and appeals to you. It is also using your knowledge and creditable information in making your case. You are pretty much getting a viewer to read, watch or hear what you want them to hear. You do this by presenting your information in a particular way at a specific moment or incorporate current events that tie into what you are trying to say. In simple terms you are persuading to get your point across.
