Online Journalism Multimedia Projects

The 27 students in the spring 2012 Comm361-001/Online Journalism class created five multimedia projects.
Two of the projects (Virginia earthquakes, Pythons in the Everglades) were assisted by Cheryl O’Brien, an Information Officer at the U.S. Geological Survey in Reston, Va., and a former student in the class more than a decade ago. Cheryl wanted to return to the class to update her skill set.
All five projects benefited from the assistance of the class technology assistant, Andrew Knight, and Jake McClendon, Photo/Video editor of Connect2Mason, the Student Media convergence site.
Projects utilized the WordPress site builder created by Aram Zucker-Scharff; Storify (the 2011 Online Journalism class was a beta tester for the template); uploading video and audio to YouTube and Vimeo; database visualizations; slideshows; timelines; and social media feedback.
Comments are most welcome.

    I think what you published was very reasonable. However, consider
    this, suppose you added a little content? I ain’t suggesting
    your information is not good., but what if you added something
    to maybe get a person’s attention? I mean Online Journalism Multimedia Projects | is a
    little vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news titles to get people interested.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to get people interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
