This handout is also available in PDF.


Welcome to the Spring 2013 session of Grinnell College's CSC 195.01, a special topics course entitled Technologies for Mediascripting.

This is an experimental course. Among other things, this means that I expect to be updating the syllabus as the semester goes on.
