Digital Journalism I “JOUR 355”

This course trains journalism students at Roger Williams University to enhance their news reporting with multimedia and interactive elements. Now in its fourth offering, the fall 2014 course will revolve around midterm elections in Rhode Island. Previously, in the fall of 2013, we built the prototype for a new hyper-local online magazine, Under The Bridge. The digitaljournos site displays links to student blogs, course-related materials, suggestions, tips, rants, and raves from contributors.


Under The Bridge is Live!

Roger Williams University journalism students launched a new digital news magazine, Under The Bridge, on December 16, 2013. The online publication was created this past semester as a class project for JOUR355 Digital Journalism I course. It will now live on as a student-run publication. We are proud of the exploration of our local community our team assembled in 15 weeks of original reporting, research, and multimedia production. We invite you to explore the work of our digital journalists. Come join us, Under The Bridge.
