Teaching method

The teaching methodology is based in the principle of information exchange, as much in the
strictly bibliographical level as in the exploration of online hyperfictional practices (60%
theoretical classes; 40% practical classes)

Evaluation method

A written individual test, on the generality of the syllabus: 25%.
A short essay analysing a hypertextual object, e.g., a blog: 25%.
A longer essay with a comprehensive analysis of one of the themes in the syllabus: 50%.
