TOP REVIEWS FROM WHAT IS NEWS?
Very good because it is taught about all the basics of journalists. Various case studies also train me to be able to think more with the mindset of a journalist. I highly recommend this class.
This is a great jumping off point. The modules are manageable for tight time availability, the assignments are approachable and the staff are very engaging. Would definitely recommend.
Material is great, and have submitted everything early. Just waiting to be peer reviewed and have people to peer review so I can finish this module completely.
Very rich in content and directional! The idea of what is news is no longer a brain cracking one, but well understood to the point of liking and practicing news writing. Good one!
