Supporting the Long Tail of Journalism

We aim to foster the collaborative development of a sustainable Open Education Resource (OER) ecosystem for Community Journalists to create, share, repurpose and reuse digital content in support of learning, skill development and the craft/profession. This is a project developed by journalists for journalists.
We are focusing on the following themes:

  1. Capability and community development
  2. Software and tools development to improve the usability and interoperability of the technology for newcomers to collaborative online authoring and content integration with appropriate technology platforms.
  3. Seeding OER content development for use in community journalism locally, nationally and internationally.
  4. Journalism education research projects.
