Journalism teachers are always looking for curriculum and ideas for how to teach their classes. Recently, Don Goble authored a great iTunesU course on mobile journalism, and I published two courses: Photojournalism For Social Change and Video Journalism For Social Change.
Don’s course is a great way to get your feet wet producing video news stories using only your iPhone or iPad, and includes many tips on composition, editing, sound and more.
My two courses are targeted to students and schools who don’t have access to journalism classes, training or equipment. The focus is to use iPhones and iPads–relatively low-cost alternatives to desktop computers, DSLRs and video cameras– to create and share ideas and perspectives not covered in mainstream media.
Both of my courses are designed for beginners, and include teacher guides to help instructors manage and evaluate projects.
All three courses are part of the ADEs on iTunesU collection, where you can find a plethora of courses on many subjects authored by Apple Distinguished Educators. Universities and colleges also author using iTunesU, and these courses can be used free of charge.
