About

Welcome to the online home of Reinventing the News: The Journalism of the Web (JRNL 5340), a course at the Northeastern University School of Journalism.

The purpose of Reinventing the News is two-fold. During the semester, you will learn and practice various forms of digital journalism, including blogging, photography, Web video, using Twitter and other social media as research and reporting tools, Google Maps and the good and bad side of news-site comments.

You will also learn about and discuss where the business of news is heading by studying a variety of online news organizations and hearing from some guest speakers who are working to usher this future into being.

You can find out more about me than you could possibly want to know at my blog, Media Nation.
