In preparing for this course, I’ve come across several interesting web and mobile based news platforms. One of my hopes for this semester is to learn more about how to publish among some of the these platforms. I imagine like me, most of you don’t have direct experience with producing content for these platforms. One of my plans for this class is for all of us to learn how create documents for such environments.
Issuu is one such service that looks like a good place to begin for our first assignments and projects. It presents documents in both newspaper and magazine formats. Please take some time to explore the site. Go ahead and set up an account and subscribe some stuff that looks interesting.
One student paper I’ve subscribe to is The Miscellany News from Vasser College in New York state. I think we could produce something along these lines but on a much smaller scale in this class. What do you guys think. Feel free to respond in the comments section of the blog.
