Three-day workshop in Austin to help advisers move online

Looking to move your program online and don’t know where to start? Or are you ready to move your website to the next level from a free hosting site?

The Texas Association of Journalism Educators and Texas Interscholastic League Press Conference are holding a new media training for advisers August 2-4 in Austin.

Advisers will leave with a website that uses WordPress as content-management system, an overview of how to teach online journalism and organize a convergence staff. The three-day course will also cover editing audio and audio slideshows. Lunch is included. For more information or to register, visit http://www.texasjteachers.com.
