About Self-Directed Courses
In a self-directed course, you can start and stop whenever you like, progressing entirely at your own pace and going back as many times as you want to review the material.
A variety of complex decisions go into producing television news broadcasts.
This course puts the power of video news editing in your hands, so you can see how the choices you make shape the message you send.
You can create your own news stories by editing a wide variety of TV clips, including U.S. and international in-depth reports; news talk programs; and breaking news items.
By producing your own news segments, you'll see how the choices you make can shape others' opinions about issues in the news and can define the public agenda.
You'll also be a smarter news consumer because you'll learn how to evaluate and decode messages in other news stories and in other media.
