Data Journalism

Getting Started

 

As I am implementing several new features to this class this semester, I plan to blog about the activities so others may use these materials as a resource for adding these topics to their own programs/curricula. This semester, the Advanced Online Media course has two major team projects: the SXTXState.com project (this is our 5th year covering SXSWi), and our new project funded by an AEJMC/Knight grant in which we will be reporting on Texas State's recent designation as Hispanic Serving Institution. So, we have an aggressive timetable and lots to learn.

We had our first class last night, a group of 14 grad students (well, 1 undergrad who was given permission to enter the class) ready to tackle the concepts of data and programming. This class is the next step that students in our program can take after a basic intro web design class.

We had several things to accomplish last night, basically getting everyone familiar and comfortable with the material we will be covering. You can see the topics on the Outline above, including the Intro to Web Development presentation.
