Interactive Journalism II, offered during the Spring 2011 term, concentrates on providing students with intermediate-to-advanced interactive storytelling abilities.
The course will expand on reporting, writing and visual storytelling for interactive media taught in Interactive Journalism I, as well as cover new dimensions of digital reporting such as data presentation using Flash. Other advanced skills students will learn in the course will include collaborative deadline digital reporting, higher-level multimedia storytelling using new techniques in Final Cut Pro and Photoshop, and the advanced use of other web-based tools such as blogging platforms, social networks, podcasting and liveblogging.
The course is taught by Profs. Adam Glenn and John Smock, with adjuncts Russell Chun, Thomas Lin of the New York Times, and Susan McGregor of the Wall Street Journal, along with staff of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
