LeBlanc, Paul J.
Presenting a comprehensive look at (and critical history of) computer-aided composition (CAC), this book focuses on faculty development of software for composition studies. The book describes who is building these writing tools, how they are doing so, how their work is being received, and what is likely to affect their efforts in the future. Chapters in the book are: (1) Introduction; (2) Understanding Computer Software; (3) The "Who" and "How" of CAC Software Development; (4) Forces that Impact CAC Software Design; and (5) CAC Software Design and the New Literacy. A brief description of 13 software programs mentioned in the book and samples of program interfaces are appended. (Contains over 200 references.) (RS)
