During Spring semester 2017, I taught a course in Interactive Digital Media at Wake Forest University. This was my class. 15 journalism minors, all of them girls. Not sure how that happened, but yes, it was fun.
The class introduced the basics of digital media use in journalistic style stories. We learned the fundamentals of photoshop, digital audio, video, and tools for creating interactive web media, like Knight Lab and WordPress. Here are a few stories my students created:
