Academic Item Menu
In this course you will hone work-ready skills associated with commissioning, researching, creating, editing, publishing and publicising digital journalism in the real world context of a live online publication. You will develop your ability to meet deadlines as you produce, edit and/or layout publishable multi-media packages (words, images, audio, video) for delivery on the online publication. At the same time you will develop skills associated with social-media engagements around the online publication - e.g. publicising the site's content via Twitter, Facebook and similar platforms; managing reader comments on content; tracking hits on the online publication site via data analytics; managing search engine optimisation (SEO) for published items; and so on. The course will provide you with the opportunity to enhance your own portfolio, to be mentored by a media professional, to participate in a media-practice based community and to establish all-important media industry contacts.
