Product Description

Review

As the news business transforms, Online Journalism is a fantastic new resource for both students and lecturers. Informative, straightforward and easily digested, it’s a one-stop shop for the skills, knowledge, principles and mindset required for journalistic success in the digital age.

(Mary Braid 2013-10-29)

An essential guide for anyone hungry to learn how journalism should be practised today, and will be tomorrow. Hill and Lashmar encapsulate the transformative impact technology is having on journalism, but anchor those changes in the basic principles of reporting.

(Paul Lewis 2013-10-18)

This book serves as a sharp and succinct guide to learning the skills for real-world journalism in the online era. Packed with the unusual mix of recent and relevant case studies, practical advice and the intellectual underpinnings of the practice, this serves as a very effective handbook indeed for those learning the trade. (James Ball 2013-11-03)

The steady decline in circulation of the print media continues to be a source of deep concern: there is much talk of the slow death of our trade. But Paul Lashmar shows how serious, cutting-edge reporting can not only survive but take a leap forward with the use of new technology.

Lashmar uses his vast experience as a renowned investigative journalist, armed with the best of the traditional skills of story getting and writing, to analyse and explain how to embrace and exploit the evolving opportunities. This book is invaluable not only to students entering the field but those already there who may feel daunted by what the future holds for our working lives.

(Kim Sengupta 2013-11-17)

I think this book is really well put-together. I came to it in a roundabout way as I have been looking for an online jounalism short course... then realised they're generally quite expensive and sound like mainly common sense. I thought a book might dig a bit deeper and this one does, while still being very practical and giving lots of straightforward tips, examples of effective and innovative online journalism, ideas about software and tools to use and exercises to try. But it also encourages you to think about what journalism is and will become and promotes an investigative, thoughtful, ethical approach to creating high quality content.

The authors are clearly very experienced, knowledgeble and well-respected, and have also included interviews giving advice from experts in different fields (such as video/broadcasting, radio and photography) from the likes of the BBC and major newspapers. The book talks a lot about the 'convergent newsroom' (i.e. print and a range of media for web) and the modern journalist being equipped to create text, images, infographics, video, audio and know which (or which combination) is the most engaging way to present a particular story, and use social media in an intelligent and useful way. I think this book would certainly help prepare you for this.
The links (QR codes) to the book's website provide more information, examples and exercises and they say it will be updated regularly ....all in all, I think it's a very good value package.
