In order to properly prepare our students for the multimedia journalism world, we must be able to do it all. Yet making a good video seems to be a hurdle many of us […]

The sea change has happened.  I don’t mean Global Warming, but rather interactive, on-line education and learning, especially in journalism and newspaper production classes.
