News as a Conversation (class project)

News as a Conversation (class project)

On April 15th, I talked about “News As a Conversation” in my Online Journalism class at Lindenwood University. The presentation was based on the chapter “Managing News as a Conversation” in Mark Briggs‘ book JournalismNext, in which he talks about the interaction between users and content providers. You can find my Prezi here.

Since the chapter is all about user-generated content and collaboration, I asked my classmates to comment and discuss the topic while I was presenting. It was a total experiment that proved to be successful!

Here’s the discussion that came out of it. Enjoy!

Hello attentive and collaborative virtual300ers! As journalists, you are among the one percent of active contributers! Happy commenting!
