Mindy McAdams, a journalism professor at the University of Florida, created a great page for journalists who want to learn multimedia skills. Her page includes a printable Reporter’s Guide to Multimedia Proficiency (download PDF here).
Topics include blogs, RSS, audio, podcasts, photography, Soundslides, video, iMovie and more.
Why read these blogs? Because you will better understand how (and why) the media world around us is changing if you stay up-‐to-‐date on the changes. People who understand what is happening are less likely to become road kill.
If you had been reading ReadWriteWeb this morning, you would have learned how to tell Siri to pour you a beer.
Multimedia skills help students land jobs. Here is an example: Greg Linch, a former University of
Florida Miami student who got a job at the Washington Post.
