CMMC 331 - Digital Journalism I

The primary skills and practices involved in constructing news for the online environment. Begins with an exploration of the evolution of journalism from print to online and digital forms. By looking critically at a range of journalistic examples and reading about the changing work of reporting, students grapple with the differences between traditional and new media forms of journalism and begin to learn the practice of reporting online. They work through a set of exercises researching story ideas, pitching them to the class, conducting interviews, and writing, designing, and posting short pieces for the Web, introducing them to the possibilities and constraints of working in this medium.
