Eight students from my MCom 63 class got their Listen To Me videos selected by PBS editors and posted on the PBS Newshour website.
Twenty-five journalism schools from across the country participated in the national fall 2012 project.
More than 1000 videos were submitted, including videos from students at the University of Missouri/Arizona/Oregon/Montana/UC Berkeley/USC/NYU/Columbia U and Syracuse, to name a few.
We started this project the first day of class near the end of August. The students had never worked with DSLR cameras or flipcams, nor were they familiar audio gathering or with the Final Cut or Adobe Premiere editing systems.
How about a shout-out for good teaching!
