COMM 324 - REPORTING AND PRODUCING ONLINE NEWS
Reporting and Producing Online News examines how to work in a 24/7 converged news and information environment, and what this means for the consumer and the journalist. The course covers the central tenets of online journalism: interactivity, immediacy, building community, and the ways in which they are applied to disseminate news and information to create a multimedia user experience. The course will emphasize sound reporting and writing skills coupled with a hands-on approach to produce cross-platform stories using slideshows, audio, video, maps, timelines, among other multimedia elements. Students will report, write and produce interactive, multimedia story packages, and understand the role of blogs, social networking sites and citizen journalism play in reporting and information delivery.
