Course DescriptionNews media are shifting to a new paradigm: writing and delivering news at a digital pace for global audiences on multiple platforms, including television, desktop, or mobile phone. This course introduces you to how major networks prepare the news and use digital journalism to inform the world, becoming the biggest news websites across the globe. Journalists now collaborate more closely than ever to deliver the news on air and online if digital operations and networks want to maintain and build audiences. This means journalists must know the high skills of story selection, news judgment, pitches, assignment desk operations, pre- and post-production, and ultimately writing under intense pressure. This course exposes you to how networks gather the news and then create content for our emerging digital universe.
