SYLLABUS UPDATE: Wrap-up assignments for live coverage (Glenn-Mon/Thu)

Folks, I’ve added to the syllabus the following details regarding the wrap-up live event assignment. Questions, comments – send them my way! Good luck, Adam

Assignment 1: Wrap-up of live event coverage: Blog post on class blog with short text (250-300 words) rounding up major news elements of events and teasing full live-coverage package, as well as at least one visual element. The visual element serves as a highlights reel of the event, or a trailer to longer multimedia. It could include a slideshow (with at least six images) or audio slideshow (of at least one minute in length); an edited video piece, either a teaser of livestream highlights, or collection of MOS elements; or an interactive graphic, such as a Google map with multiple elements, or a datagraphic showing population changes, etc. REMEMBER, the wrap-up coverage constitutes 25% of the final grade for the team project. NOTE: Please post your blog entry with appropriate categories (Glenn – Mon or Glenn – Thu) and appropriate tags (“live coverage project”). NOTE: Much of Week 14 will be a workshop dedicated to producing this content.  DEADLINE: Start of Week 15 class. Be prepared to demo wrap-up and elements of live coverage during the final class.

Assignment 2: Recap of social media promotion: Short blog post outlining promotion of event prior to, during and following event, including items such as number, dates and sample of posts on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks. NOTE: Please post your blog entry with appropriate categories (Glenn – Mon or Glenn – Thu) and appropriate tags (“live coverage project”).  NOTE: Much of Week 14 will be a workshop dedicated to producing this content. DEADLINE: Start of Week 15 class. Be prepared to demo wrap-up and elements of live coverage during the final class.
