How can you display your content – using multiple modes or multiple platforms – so as to increase the immersive and dynamic qualities of your text?
Breaking up content into modular sections can very easily make a piece non-linear. For example, even the content of a traditional, linear essay can become non-linear using digital multimodality. By taking a traditional essay, cutting it up into independent sections, and placing it across multiple pages, each with links to each other, the story becomes non-linear and invites the reader to choose which direction to go.
Making content modular opens up choices for the reader, but it also opens up choices for the composer. The reader does not have to click on any specific order of links to read a certain piece of content. It is up to the composer to compel the reader using the available modes to click on the links that are most important to the meaning of the text.
Easily create a clickable collage with Pinterest or Photo Galleries in free site-builders. Link each image in the collage to different pages of content to tell a story that can be read in any order.
