This is a foundation class for the digital journalism and communication training we offer. Many journalists and media practitioners were trained as print, TV, Radio or internet journalists, but multimedia is about telling stories in more than one medium. Many media practitioners still think reaching people with news and information is either through newspaper, TV, Radio or internet. Today people have a lot of digital tools and platforms from which not only to access, but contribute to and share news and information. Why is it important for journalists and media houses to tell stories or to reach out to people in more than one medium on these digital tools and platforms and what platforms are available to enable this? Appreciate the urgent need for change to utilize new media tools to tell multimedia stories.
