Happy Wiki Wednesday! This week we’re excited to announce that we’ve streamlined the registration process for becoming a DRC Wiki Editor. We here at the Digital Rhetoric Collaborative have embraced the wiki as a technology to crowd-source publication, curation, and sharing of disciplinary knowledge. Whether you’re an advanced undergraduate student, a graduate student, new PhD, or a seasoned instructor and scholar, we welcome your contributions to the community resource that is the DRC Wiki.
We invite you to try out our new registration process and become a DRC Wiki Editor Today!

Not sure where to start with your DRC Wiki Entries?
The DRC Wiki is a compendium of information and wisdom about digital rhetoric, computers and writing, and their digital relations near and far. Whether you’re working in online writing instruction or the digital humanities, we invite scholars of all ranks, students and instructors–whether K-12 teachers or college professors, to participate in this collaborative effort to write and edit content in the DRC Wiki, a compendium of information and shared knowledge about digital rhetoric, computers and writing, and their digital relations. The DRC Wiki is organized around collecting knowledge around the following topics:
- key People,
- key Threshold Concepts in Digital Rhetoric,
- key Histories,
- key Institutions,Organizations, and Conferences,
- key Texts (books, articles, journals, webtexts, websites),
- key Technologies and Software, and
- key Teaching Resources
Some suggestions for editing those entries include:
• Instructors: Add a syllabus, site or article to our list of Teaching Resources.
• PhD Students: Turn a summary of an influential book or article from your exam notes into a starter entry for our section on Key Texts.
• Students: Add something you learned in a course this week to our Key Concepts.
• Everyone: Doing something particularly interesting or exciting at your school with computers and writing – a digital certificate, a digital humanities center, a multiliteracy center, or another resource supporting multimodal projects? Write up a quick blurb and add it to the “Institutions” section of the Institutions, Organizations and Conferences page.
So, register and start editing today!
