About

ATTN: TheJUMP is currently operating well-behind schedule. We are dealing with major infrastructure changes (both in human and technological resources). It is still our hope to publish issue 7.1 this fall, but in regards to submission decisions we are currently requiring 14-18 weeks from point of submission. 

What is TheJUMP?

The Journal for Undergraduate Multimedia Projects is an electronic journal dedicated to providing an outlet for the excellent digital/multimedia projects occurring in undergraduate courses around the globe, and to providing a pedagogical resource for teachers working with (or wanting to work with) "new media."
 The journal is designed to be not only a repository for quality multimedia scholarship—bringing together some of the most rhetorically creative and rhetorically impactful works produced/composed by our undergraduates—but also, unlike its digital brethren (i.e., megarepositories like YouTube), it seeks to also offer a critical perspective.

As such, the projects we publish include assignment descriptions from the courses in which they originated, reflections by the instructors involved, and design rationales or process/product reflections by the author(s)/composer(s) themselves. In these reflection pieces, the creators attempt to critically consider their design/production choices and/or the intent of their projects in light of their rhetorical message, their "composing" process, and the technologies involved. Additionally, our editorial collective members—current and emerging scholars with connections to digital media, multimedia, new media, communicational technologies, social media, digital rhetorics, and the like—offer responses to and/or comments on these works.
 
The pedagogical focus of this e-journal is critical to its success as we not only want to see really great projects and the assignments or prompts (and courses) that give them shape, we also want to consider and work through the nuances of critique, assessment, impact, and so on (often the more murky areas associated with digital multimedia productions).
 
Pairing this emphasis with the student reflection/rationale and the critical responses by editorial collective members (as well as the general conversations and responses by TheJUMP members) allows for a more dynamic and richer engagement than merely being an e-scholarship repository.
 
We welcome your submissions and your participation!
