411 / Assignment


Today we’re going to talk about the “Age of Transformation,” the history of the Internet, and continue taming and shaping the WordPress sites.

To prepare for Thursday, please complete the following.

Assignment 1: Anatomy of  Multimedia News Organization

Enroll in NewsU and take the course Anatomy of a Multimedia News Organization. You needn’t complete the “Bringing It Together” unit.

You don’t need to spend three hours in the course, but stay there until you are comfortable with the content.

On Thursday, you’ll be divided into three groups. Each group will be assigned one of the units to “teach” the class. You’ll have 20 minutes to prepare a five-minute (or less) teaching presentation, with visuals. The presentation should include a “live” example.

You’ll also have an individual glossary assignment, so make sure you review that last unit of the class. Incidentally, by the time you finish this course, the words in that glossary should be a regular part of your vocabulary.
