HSBJ: Getting Into Multimedia 101, 102, 103 back for the summer

Once again, HSBJ is partnering with The National Press Club in Washington D.C. to offer a series of online classes for both professional teachers and professional broadcasters. The “Getting into Multimedia” courses are each about 10 hours of work, including class time and independent work. While the class itself runs three days, students will have ten days to complete their work assignements. For teachers, Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) are available from Kent State University.

The fee for each course is $50. National Press Club members can receive a discounted registration of $30.

You can register on the RTDNA website. Please note there are separate registrations for teachers and for National Press Club members.
