Paul Bradshaw, an instructor in the U.K. and creator of the must-read Online Journalism Blog, has put together a handy guide to principles of multimedia journalism—with especially good tips for building blogs.
We just covered the presentation above in today’s class. I would recommend that you check out the rest of his how-to PowerPoints—which, by the way, are excellent examples of the way to do a PowerPoint, much like Guy Kawasaki’s 10-20-30 rule.
For Thursday, I’d like you to build on what we learned today by skimming through the whole series of BASIC principles of online journalism:
- B is for Brevity
- A is for Adaptability
- S is for Scannability
- I is for Interactivity
- C is for Community and Conversation
Please respond in the comments section with your impressions on the series. What did you most find interesting, enlightening, novel … and why?
