Looking for ways to cover a big event at your school online? Chris Snider, of the Des Moines Register, posted an article to his blog last month talking about what the Register did for the state’s big Iowa v. Iowa State football game this year. The post is a great conversation starter for staffs working to cover expand their coverage of an event online. It could work for anything ranging from homecoming or prom to a big football or basketball rivalry game.
