Multimedia storytelling: a Toolkit for Journalists   


Mindy McAdams at The University of Florida has developed a graduate course focused on multimedia storytelling. It's a course that prepares students to work as a journalist in the newsrooms of today and/or the future where online and digital platforms are as important as traditional print or broadcast platforms.

Mindy on her blog at mindymcadams.com/tojou/: This semester I had the opportunity to create and teach a new graduate course, focused on multimedia storytelling. I admitted 15 students, all of whom had some prior experience as reporters (for some, it was only a one-semester reporting class).

The complete syllabus is online; the course is called Journalists’ Toolkit 1.
