COMM 486, EDUC 485, EDUC 685: Multimedia Literacy

This course uses online resources that are freely downloadable. You are not required, therefore, to purchase a printed textbook. During the course, depending on specific technologies you decide to use when working on your project, it is possible that you may want to purchase a book or two, but that will be totally up to you. Most students will be able to find what they need here online without needing to purchase a printed book.


To complete the hands-on computer assignments, each student will need access to a multimedia computer (Windows PC or Macintosh) that is connected to the Internet via the latest version of either Firefox, Safari, or Chrome.

Computer Accounts

Every University of Delaware student automatically receives an e-mail account. You should visit www.udel.edu/network to manage your password, username, and quotas.

Computer Sites

All students registered in this class have the option of using the multimedia PCs and Macs in the campus computing sites. Use sites.udel.edu/computingsites to link to the general access site schedule. Please note that the use of the campus computing sites is totally optional in this course. If you have your own computer and Internet connection, you may never need to use the campus computing sites.

E-mail Addresses

Every student in this class must have an e-mail address on the Internet and read e-mail regularly. If you're enrolled in a University of Delaware course, and you do not have an e-mail account yet, go to the help center and follow the e-mail link for detailed instructions on how to activate your e-mail account.
