Your Multimedia Stories

I'm linking below to your multimedia stories, which will live on our college server for five or six years -- so that assessment teams can review your work.

Our two graduate students, Tina Irgang and Linda Blachly, were required to do a bit more work on these stories than the undergrads.

Most of you also linked to the personal resume/clip packages you created early in the semester on wordpress.com. You linked to these pages in the copyright line of your multimedia story. So if you'd like to peruse each others' work, you should have links to do so for those personal pages, too.

Thanks for all your hard work this semester. You survived units on blogging, tweeting, Web page building and layout, basic photo and video shooting and editing, slide show and google map creation, headline writing and search engine optimization, copyright and libel. You'll be stronger journalists for it. Hopefully, this exposure will make you fearless in picking up and learning other new tools as they come along. And maybe you'll even be creating some of them!

All the best in your internships and jobs this summer! Please keep in touch!

Haha! This is a really cool blog. His posts are really unique, such as "An Affordable Sitter in a Foreign Land." I'm sure many couples run into the problem of needing to find a sitter while traveling, but I've never seen anything written about it before.
