This course will give students a better understanding of how new media tools are changing the nature of journalism. The course will explore not only the ways in which the tools of online journalism affect the way that the news is conveyed, but also how widespread access to those tools, and to information are changing how citizens participate in receiving and delivering news. In a "my time" media enviornment where consumers have more flexibility than ever before to set their own viewing, reading, and listening schedule, what new journalism sites are thriving? How might "old media" institutions successfully adapt to a my time world? What is gained or lost as reporters evolve into all-in-one multi-platform journalists?
