JOUR2087 Multimedia and Multiplatform Journalism (3 units)
This course provides introductory hands-on experience reporting and producing news stories through many different digital storytelling techniques, including photography, audio, video, writing and animation, as well as understanding how and where to publish those works of journalism across various traditional and digital platforms. Students will be expected to work both as reporters (i.e. finding and gathering information with modem digital newsroom tools) and editors (i.e. processing and producing stories using relevant software) on individual and group assignments. This course will foster students’ story-telling and critical-thinking skills as they learn to choose appropriate platforms, integrate multimedia content and apply traditional reporting methods to new technology. Students will also create an online portfolio of original journalism work to be used throughout their four-year studies, in particular when applying for internships in Year 3.
