What will I learn? Want to spread your wings beyond print reporting, but don’t know where to start? In this course, you’ll learn the basic steps of telling your story with multimedia. You’ll discover ways to map out your story before you head out to do your reporting. And you’ll learn when to use such tools as audio, video and graphics.
This course also walks you through one case study, so you can see how multimedia stories are built. Plus, through our course partners at UC-Berkeley and the Knight New Media Center, you can explore a library of tutorials to help you with the technical side of recording, taping and editing for the Web.
