Composing for the web and making websites can be very rewarding ways to explore multimodality. There are myriad tools available for you to build a webpage at any skill level. This kind of multimodal project really asks you to think about what hypertext means, and how it works. How does the arrangement of text on the web differ from text on a printed page? What does it mean to compose a text that isn’t linear? What effect does design have on the rhetorical situation of your text? Is your website accessible? These are all questions you should ask when you start your project.
