[From our e-mail newsletter]
From the beginning, we've counted on you to shape Poynter's News University. Your participation and feedback have made NewsU what it is today -- one of the world's most innovative journalism e-learning sites.
As we get ready to welcome our 200,000th registered user, we're counting on you once again: to tell your NewsU story. We want to know how NewsU has made you a better journalist, a better teacher, a better student or even a better news consumer.
Your Story Counts. Why? Because it helps us demonstrates the scope and impact of NewsU's offerings.
We have lined up our partners – Missouri State University, Florida Atlantic University and, the latest, California State University, Fullerton. We announced Cal State this week.
We have lined our courses – 16 weeks of readings, assignments and discussions based on more than two dozen self-directed modules.
We have lined up our faculty – 15 Poynter faculty and associates who will lead a live, interactive session weekly.
We're always working on something new at Poynter's NewsU, but we don't want to work alone. So we're asking your help as we shape a couple of new courses about audiences: Functional Web Design for Today’s News Audiences and Understanding Audiences. We've developed these preview editions so you can share your ideas and training needs.
Whether Wednesday's Webinar was your first or your 100th, thanks again for signing up for 100 Ideas to Make Your Journalism Better. The replay, with all the audio and video, is now available. You can watch as many times as you want to catch all the great ideas to make your journalism better.
Not only do we love training, we love sharing our training with others. Here's where you can help.
With the turmoil in Egypt and elsewhere, we want to remind the Poynter News University community and others, who might being covering aspects of this story, that we have a couple of free and very helpful training modules.
Reporting Global Issues Locally. Learn how to report global issues on a local level that is relevant to your hometown audience - even without a travel budget.
We've talked about this for a while. We picked our new server technology because it could do this. Finally, we have gone public with the first of our Poynter News University International efforts.
NewsU International is a partnership between The Poynter Institute and the International Center for Journalists. Together we'll customize NewsU's interactive, self-directed modules so that they are culturally and professionally relevant for international users.
We are coming to the end of our training gifts. Our final package is aimed at giving you training to help you produce engaging and interactive stories by taking advantage of the latest mobile and media tools.
Poynter's News University can show you how to do just that. With the last Training Tuesday special discount of the year, we’re offering 50 percent off our Mobile and Media Essential Tools Series. With this training package, you’ll learn the essentials of mobile news reporting and delivery.
We are almost finished with our special holiday training gifts. With video being so important -- and perhaps you'll receive a video camera -- there's no better way to learn the best video storytelling techniques than to listen to the professionals who do it every day.
That’s why as our holiday gift to you, we’re offering our Video Storytelling Workshop: 2010 Package for half off.
