J298 Advanced Coding Interactives

This is a class that teaches students how to build multifaceted online news packages. Students will construct web presentations that combine multiple media forms, and learn how to design a longform story in a way that connects each piece into a cohesive narrative structure. Students will learn the technical skills for building web packages — HTML, CSS and jQuery — as well as design concepts for presenting content on different devices, with emphasis on how each medium influences the content. This is a production class where students will have to build a news package on a real news story they reported on. Students in this class are encouraged to take a complementary reporting class like New Media Visuals. They may use reporting content from any other class for their final project in this class.
