PostSubject: Do journalists need multimedia background?   Mon Sep 10, 2007 5:19 pm

Sort of a crossover from the multimedia forum...

Quote :
Are you (or is the student) preparing to work on the Web site of a publication, or as a content editor or producer at a Web pure-play?

Get solid, regular practice with a CMS. Any reasonably good CMS will do, but the easiest choice is to set up a free blog at, modify the “theme” (template) and post to it regularly. I recommend that students keep individual blogs so they can modify and enhance them at will, instead of simply writing in a group blog. Some students will really get into it — and teach themselves a lot in the process! Others will kind of tiptoe along, doing only what the teacher requires them to do.

How much should a reporter have to know about the digital tech behind the scenes? Do they need to know how to use a video camera? The ins and outs of their newspaper's CMS? What about cross-linking stories and topics? Is that the digital staff's job or the journalists?
