LIS4022 - Technical Writing

Welcome to the Course!

This front page - in Canvas - is the primary source of material for this course; everything you need will be available here.

That being said, many links and resources required for the course, as well as a mirror of this front page, are hosted from jrm4.com, my personal site. Please feel free to browse there as well, but again, the Canvas page is primary.

Contacting me should only be done through regular email, at jmarks@fsu.edu (Messaging through Canvas may be missed- is a better and safer tool for this purpose)

You don't need to do anything for the first day besides show up. The syllabus is below, and schedules and procedures will be discussed in class on the first day. See you then!

On the first day, do not leave the class until the professor has taken attendance.
