Write for Kairos




Paradigm: Online Writing Assistant
Chuck Guilford
The Cyberspace Project served these authors well in that it was both a classroom success and a perfect introduction to online teaching and the politics of such an endeavor. They share a condensed version of their conclusions here.

Advice to the Linelorn: Crossing State Borders and the Politics of Cyberspace
Jennifer Jordan-Henley and Barry Maid
Paradigm is an interactive, menu-driven, online writer's guide and handbook written in HTML and distributed freely over the WWW. It works on frames-capable browsers, using hypertext structure to create a web of links and text windows that you can navigate quickly and easily by clicking your desired choice.
