Abstract: This qualitative research examines the impact of multimedia web-authoring tools on the composing processes of literacy learners, P-12. It proposes that the multimodal features of these tools facilitate and extend the range of literacy processes and products and that the shifting between and among the different tools enriches the construction of knowledge. Two interventions demonstrating learner engagement with multiple tools were investigated. Using a case study method, some early markers were identified that demonstrated the impact of web-authoring tools on the composing processes of grade two and grade eleven students.
