Course Title:

Online Writing and Journalism


Colorado State University OnlinePlus

Fort Collins, Colorado, United States

Course format: Online

The course and its related assignments help participants write clearly, concisely, conversationally and creatively for the World Wide Web.

The focus is on quality reporting, writing and editing, not computer skills. Students are introduced to audio news production and editing, and basic photographic storytelling as a means of preparing for the multi-platform newsrooms and PR shops where employment likely occurs.

By the end of the semester, students have a better understanding of the challenges facing both online and traditional journalism today, mostly because of:

?the creation of their own news beat blogs,
?the practice of the basics of audio news production, including script writing,
?the publication of original journalistic stories for the Web,
?readings about and discussion of the changing face of journalism and the role that online media has in that change, and
?the production of one multi-media package as individuals and one as part of a team.

In short, students leave this course not only with the skills considered vital in today&,#146,s communication fields, but also a critical understanding of how communicators in the converging new media best serve society.

Elements of this syllabus are subject to change.
