Muncie, Ind. – Crystal Frayer’s English Composition students are the first at Ivy Tech to use Vizi Courseware’s Rhetoric, Composition, and Expression for a Digital Age. This text, designed by Vizi Courseware, engages students with an online, interactive, multimodal alternative to traditional print textbooks. “We are excited to support Ms. Frayer and her students as they use our multimodal text as their primary study resource. This pilot is a great opportunity to positively impact outcomes for students at Indiana’s largest institution of higher education with engaging, relevant content.” says Karynn Adamowicz, Vizi’s Director of Learning Advancement.
