This blog is supplemental to an undergraduate course in journalism: Reporting and Writing for Online Media.
This course (JOU 4341) is taught at the University of Florida in the College of Journalism and Communications. It is open to journalism students who have completed JOU 3101 Reporting with a grade of C or better.
This course prepares the student to work as a journalist in today’s newsrooms where the online and digital platforms are at least as important as the traditional print or broadcast platforms. Students learn audio for online media, a little photojournalism, audio slideshows, blogging, and basic video shooting and editing.
The emphasis is on journalistic storytelling techniques more than technology and software.
The author of this blog is Mindy McAdams. I have a more comprehensive blog called Teaching Online Journalism.
