Guide to Broadcast and Video Now Available

Our new broadcast and video resources will help you build a better program

If your journalism program includes broadcast or video, JEA Digital Media has compiled some valuable resources just for you.  Our new Guide To Broadcast and Video puts some of the best posts from our site in one place.  These articles are written by some of the top broadcast journalism and video teachers in the country, and include their insights, knowledge and best practices.

The Guide is especially useful for beginners and programs in their infancy.  But expert advisers and staff will also find a wealth of information, and new perspectives on everything from videography, to staffing, to mobile reporting.

This guide is part of JEA’s renewed effort to provide resources for ALL aspects of digital journalism, including broadcast journalism and traditional print programs expanding into online and video content.  Look for more posts about broadcast and video on this website, and an expanded, dedicated strand of seminars for broadcast at the JEA/NSPA Fall convention in San Antonio this November.

Please let us know what you think, and if there are any topics you’d like to see on this site or included in our new Guide.

    What is something that our membership could do to help motivate the students? What inspires the students to keep going, especially during the tough times?

    thanks for your post,

    Thanks for starting the discussion.

    I always think that competitions help a lot–it puts things in perspective for the students and lights a fire under them to do better. This is something that we’re working on for future conventions. I also think that it might be useful to have some sort of student forum, where some student leaders in broadcast can lead discussions about issues facing the staff. Of course it would have to be structured…

    Love the competition idea! Could even go social with it and have students and outsiders vote on the best video through facebook or something like that. There are also alot of youtube competitions that I think students would be interested in participating in.
