News University kicks off another another series of journalism training courses this week with the first in its Social Networks webinar series. I’m pleased to present the first event, Social Networks: The New Architecture of the Web, on Tuesday, Apr. 14, 2009. The series is developed with the Knight Digital Media Center, a partnership of the USC Annenberg School for Communication and the University of California Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. I’ll be partnering with JD Lasica on other programs in the series.
This webinar-based program is intended to brief news editors on the emerging tools and tactics of social media as they wrestle with thhe challenges of creating reader communities. We’ll look at both the content and revenue sides. My second presentation, in fact, is Social Networks: New Revenue for News Organizations, on June 16, 2009.
The cost of each webinar is a modest $24.95. In addition to the webinars, there will be assignments and group projects that can help you better understand how to build social networks and deliver new products and revenue. Come join us!
