People no longer consume media in just one medium, which poses both huge challenges and opportunities for Britain's media workers.The age of the single media specialist is disappearing rapidly, and everyone who works in the media must think about more than one platform when working with content.
360 degree commissioning has moved from being a buzzword to being a reality.
Online journalist and tutor Murray Cox will guide you through this online course with a weekly hour and a half long webinar on Mondays eves (time to be arranged).
The course will cover the new media mindset, writing for online, using social media effectively, monetizing content and IP and includes video interviews with online editors from BBC Scotland, STV and other key media professionals in Scotland.
