“The Use of Online Collaborative Writing Tools by Technical Communication Students and Practitioners”

Which format would you like to view?

This document is an excerpt from “The Use of Online Collaborative Writing Tools by Technical Communication Students and Practitioners.” I adapted this article from my undergraduate thesis for New Mexico Tech.  This particular excerpt was taken from what was originally the introduction to my thesis. I have submitted it to the journal Technical Communication for possible publication; although the response has been promising, I have not yet received a decision. Because I have submitted the article for publication, I have chosen to make available only an excerpt here. I will happily produce the full document (the original thesis or the adapted article) upon request.

My thesis was an original research project I undertook in the form of a survey to compare the use of online collaboration tools by technical communication practitioners and students. Along with illustrating my capability for clearly conveying a large amount of information to the reader, this sample also demonstrates my research skills and ability to synthesize that research in a meaningful and original way.
