JEA Curriculum Panel: Advising an Online Publication

I recently sat down with four advisers to discuss advising online publications. In this discussion, we cover:

  • staff structures and editor positions unique to online publications
  • managing rolling deadlines
  • handling challenges, issues that are unique to online publications
  • why it’s worth it to advise an online publication

Watch the full video below (approx. 35 mins.) or use the interactive buttons to skip to specific topics. If you’re viewing from a mobile device and want to bypass the interactive tool I used to divide the video into segments, you can watch the full discussion via YouTube.
