    and Journalism
  • University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

2
Strengths of Online Journalism
  • Interactivity
  • Immediacy
  • In-depth
  • International

3
The Challenges of Interactivity
  • You must be able to see all sides of a story.
  • Tell nonfiction stories in a nonlinear fashion.
    Example
  • Remain open to critiques from users and
    responsive to their needs/requests.
  • Be able to "chat" live online, like a talk-show
    host.

4
The Challenges of Interactivity
  • Carry along asynchronous discussions on issues
    you report on.
  • Monitor Web sites and online discussions for tips
    on beats.
  • Help plan, implement and work with generation
    after generation of
  • Software
  • Hardware
  • Routines
  • Bosses and co-workers
  • Site designs Example

5
The Challenges of Immediacy
  • You must do everything faster in online
    journalism.
  • Continually work under tight deadline pressure.
  • Solve problems of technology, time and distance.
  • Have a strong ethical foundation

6
Challenges of Going In-depth
  • Youll need greater expertise, tenacity and time.
    Example
  • See all kinds of stories, not just those dictated
    by our current space-and-time driven "media
    logic." Example
  • Develop stories from under-covered communities.
    Example
  • Marry written words with still pictures, audio
    and video. Example

7
Meeting the Challenges of an International
Audience
  • Employers will want you to be able to write and
    speak more than one language. Example
  • Be able to think globally (and spur people to act
    locally, as civic journalism moves online).
    Example

8
Meeting the Challenges of an International
Audience
  • You will need greater knowledge of geography,
    including knowing other nations' politics.
  • Work around the clock.
  • There's a "deadline every minute" online, and
    it's always "prime time" somewhere in the world.
