At the recent NSPA/JEA conference in Minneapolis, I presented a session called “How to survive the first year online.” In it, I listed the five key component to Niles West News‘, the website I advise, success during our first year online. It was difficult to narrow it down to just five things–but for the sake of time during the presentation, I was able to dwindle down my list.
The 5 key components:
- Immediate Content/Breaking News
- Comments (Interactivity)
- Social Media (Community)
- Collaboration (with other departments within the school)
