Hope you got the message. The change that made today Monday was also not apparent on the portal, as far as I could see. Anyway, here are some links that might be helpful concerning Spark (tutorial that sort of matches your assignment), how to post a slideshow on Instagram, how to think visually in a blog post (from and seven iPhone photo tips.

Then a recap of where we are at, with plans for next week.


  • no class today (Monday schedule is being followed)
  • deadline for post on independent journalism (presented by Group 3/Trevor & Morgan) is now next week, 4/11
  • do some reporting, think about some questions for next week’s guest, Dr. Kathy Olson: her areas are media law and ethics, particularly intellectual property, copyright, fair use and right of publicity (hint: what is the DMCA?); what are other legal areas of concern for online journalists (you could start your post for 4/18 on general issues, then segue to Dr. Olson and issues she discussed); what is on her resume? where does she teach (OK—it’s Lehigh), what is her background?
  • bring a mug shot for a gravatar next week
  • deadline for slideshows/Spark assignment is still next week, 4/11

Next week:

  • group 4 (Julia, Stephen, Buck) presents next week on mojo (mobile journalism—note there are some legal issues raised in those articles)
  • presentation by Dr. Olson
  • return of audio assignment and listen to clips
  • infographic assignment using Canva (see demo on my Emerging Technology Tech Stuff page), Infogram (formerly and Excel charts
