Journalism Training of the Centre of Initiatives in Journalism

We are developing a virtual journalism school with online courses specifically focussed on the issues faced by digital newsrooms and for training working journalists in publishing for digital mediums. The course on digital newsroom management is to acquaint students with the tools that make digital journalism happen. The challenge for any student when they get to the digital newsroom is to be useful at the earliest. Often the minor differences in the way the technology works or the cultural quirks of the place are daunting for a new entrant, but if it is compensated by a better grip on the tools of the trade, a new hire can be confident of her productivity immediately.
