Bit off a bit too much last week … but we time left to get things done, leaving out some topics planned for the next two weeks (Google analytics, custom Google maps, the Knight Lab i.e. Timeline.js). So today, not necessarily in this order:

  • Start with the live NewsU webinar with Lane DeGregory on finding your voice; this starts at 2, so you need to be here; you will write a standard 400-word post with graphic, categories, hed, at least three links for next week

  • Go over final project (see April 13 post) and reporting plan (optional/extra credit) which also has more on the video component
  • Look at interviewing tips, as part of that (I have a summary handout)
  • Maybe some quick video tips—more to come next week: This Video 101 from Vimeo’s Video School; two versions of the BBC 5-shot sequence: 1 and 2; anyone using a Joby Gorilla pod with iPhone adapter? external lav from audio-technica?
  • Group 4 presents on “mojo” (mobile journalism); standard blog post on this due next week as well
  • Get your Gravatar done
  • Return posts on Group3, independent journalism, and your slideshows/post
  • Finish the Canva infographic, do the Excel chart on color preferences, and the USA map and color chart in Infogram (see instructions on April 11 post)

Again, we shall see. Should be do-able, as we have next week to go over more on video, and the last two classes we can go over to Holroyd for editing (here your groups could get together and help on editing, narrative, etc.)
