This workshop is a follow-up to the Going Online workshops that occurred at UT in April and June, and participants at those workshops are encouraged to return, according to Jim Stovall, journalism professor at UT and executive director of the Interscholastic Online News Network.
Those who did not attend the first workshop but are interested in going online with their publications are also welcome, Stovall said.
Stovall said the workshop will emphasize hands-on training in the software that journalism teachers need to introduce to their students. Special emphasis will be given to learning how to operate JeffersonNet, the WordPress-based content management system that will support the ISONN websites.
“We have designed this content management system to be turn-key — simple, easy-to-learn, and easy-to-operate,” Stovall said.
Other software covered in the workshop will be the basics of HTML, Audacity for audio editing, iMovie for video editing, and various programs for photo editing and creating slideshows.
The deadline for registration for the workshop is Oct. 20.
