Week 3 – Discussion 2 BUS340: Business Communications (CUG2018B) ASHFORD UNIVERSITY
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
|Visual Design [WLOs: 1, 2] [CLOs: 1, 4, 5, 6]|
Write about an example of communication that could be improved by applying the visual design principles you read about this week. The communication can be any medium—a web page, a magazine ad, a promotional email, an illustration from a report, etcetera—as long as you can display it in the discussion forum. To attach a file to the discussion forum, select the “Attach” button in the bottom left-hand corner when creating a discussion response.
In your post, identify the visual weaknesses and describe ways to fix them. Explain why the message is not as effective as it could be and how your suggestions would make it more effective.
Review several of your peers’ posts, responding to at least three of them by Day 7. Respond substantively to at least three classmates throughout the week, suggesting aspects that they may have overlooked. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful and interactive discourse in this discussion forum. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 and respond robustly to anyone who replies to your initial post.
