Overview of class

Foundations of Interactive Journalism explores how newsrooms are using technology in innovative ways to engage their audiences. The class examines how a digital news presentation evolves across various multimedia platforms. This course builds on the foundations of audio, photo, and video storytelling and adds interactivity and engagement techniques -- enabling students to design dynamic, creative narratives for news, sports and feature reporting. Students will split their time between reporting, producing multimedia, analyzing current digital stories, and learning open-web technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript).
