  • Overview

    This is a communications-based course that combines writing and mobile devices to deliver web-ready news content created with the speed and quality required by news production today. The time between content gathering and message sharing has almost disappeared and making instantaneous publication has become essential for both social media and the news environment. Reporters must be able to capture information, shoot, edit, and disseminate multimedia content from a mobile phone or tablet. Students will learn both the technical (mobile camera, editing, and delivery) as well as theoretical aspects of journalism (responsibilities, visual communication, story structure, sources, outlets), and produce pieces for various news and story content outlets at FUA.
