Coulson: Top 10 Multimedia Skills New Journalists Should Have

header_coulsonI had this nice list shared with me yesterday. It was posted by Melanie Coulson on her blog. It’s her list of skills new multimedia journalists must have. It’s a nice list of six essential skills and another four that would be a great bonus. The list ranges from Live Blogging and Audio Editing to Mapping Data and Interactive Storytelling. What I really like is that Coulson has linked to a few online apps that aid in the creation of some of the skills she has listed.
