JRNL 090 - Interactive Journalism

Semester Hours: 3 s.h.


Periodically

Technology has dramatically transformed journalism and provides new opportunities to use interactivity to engage the audience in a story. This course introduces students to the essential concepts, tools, and emerging forms in interactive storytelling. Students learn to code in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and learn to use existing open-source code libraries from popular code sharing repositories. Students pitch, report, produce, and critique interactive, media-rich news packages. Students examine ways in which user interaction with content can create more compelling and personally-relevant stories. Students develop interactive multi-platform approaches to stories including quizzing, personalization, geo-referencing, and gaming which allow students to explore the different narrative potential of each, and to learn user-interface design, interactive design, wireframing, and essential coding practices.
