Journalists’ Toolkit: My other blog
Lately I have been spending a lot of time building an online course for our journalism students at the University of Florida. I can’t offer the course to the public because it’s in the university’s distance learning system and open only to enrolled students.
However, I have been updating and posting many of the resources and tutorials at Journalists’ Toolkit, a separate WordPress blog I set up outside the university’s “paywall.” By organizing that site in the WordPress CMS, I am able to manage the pages and posts more easily than using the static pages within the university’s course development system.
I would really appreciate it if you have any useful resources to recommend for tools, tutorials, etc., for budding online journalists and multimedia reporters. The categories of the site are:
- Blogs and Blogging
- General Info
- HTML and CSS
- Tools and Software
I would really welcome input from the community. As always, all the stuff I put out here is free for you to use and adapt in your own courses, classes and workshops. If you want to contribute something and retain rights to it, that would be fine with me.
