Site Critiques and Story IdeasFebruary 4th, 2009; 9:03 am by Ryan Thornburg
Our Public Affairs Reporting for New Media class is transitioning from the first to second phase of the semester, and I’ve blogged about it a bit more over at http://www.ibiblio.org/newsdesk/apples/sp09/blogs/ryan-thornburg
In the first phase, we’ve been cramming on learning more about the topic of dropouts in North Carolina and also cramming on learning the tools and techniques of online journalism. We’re now starting to think about some of our initial content creation.
In two blog posts, I summarize our critiques of other online news projects as well as our initial brainstorm of story ideas.
