Photo BlogsDigiComm students have been studying website design, learning how to create websites, and putting what they've learned to good use in developing their own photographic blogs.

Each group member is responsible for writing three entries, including one thirteen hundred word research entry.The blogs have a main theme that each member must maintain, to create a smooth flow from entry to entry.

We can’t wait to see the finished products!
