Learn Digital This January

The Knight Digital Media Center has spots for 20 working print journalists to learn the basics of multimedia journalism.

The weeklong intensive course covers: audio/video recording and editing, Flash graphics, digital cameras, Photoshop and web design concepts.

The deadline to apply is Monday, November 30, but if you miss that one, there’s another program in May, and between those two, a February session on Web 2.0 journalism and social media.

The application process is intense, we hear, so if you’re interested, get started now.

And we wouldn’t be a mediabistro blog if we didn’t promo our own courses, but simple math dictates that not everybody reading this is going to get into the Knight program (twenty slots! Yikes!). If you’re interested in a less-competitive digital edge, try one of these courses on:

Flash for Journalists (New York, NY)

Develop Your Own Online Media Platform (Chicago, IL)

Writing and Editing for the Web Essentials(Boston, MA)

Writing and Editing for the Web Essentials(New York, NY)
