From Snapchat to Instagram: Stories on social media
If you think all social apps are starting to look the same, they are. The camera is the new keyboard and the future of social media looks like photos, gifs, text, videos and music, mixed into vertical cards. They call the all-in-one experience ‘Stories.’ Snapchat invented it, Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and even Skype have now all adopted it – the vertical, mobile format dominating the social media galaxy. This new course led by Sumayia Omar, social media consultant and co-founder of social video company Hashtag Our Stories, will teach you how to use Instagram Stories, Snapchat, and Facebook Stories effectively.
An introduction to podcasting
Podcasts and online audio are at the heart of the business of digital media. With audiences flocking to the medium in record numbers and radio listening on connected devices at an all time high, there’s never been a better time to learn about and create audio. This practical workshop, led by former BBC producer Jack Soper, will examine the skills required to create short radio packages or podcasts. You will learn how to tailor content for a specific audience, then record, edit and publish it online. You will gain skills in interviewing, script writing and delivery, and the use of music and sound effects.
Online media law refresher (UK focus)
There have been some dramatic developments in online media law over the last few years, such as the continuing effects of the 2013 Defamation Act, the emergence of the Data Protection Act as a tool used against journalists, and changes to the laws of privacy and copyright. Led by Dr Richard Danbury, a journalist, qualified lawyer and legal academic, this one-day course will bring you straight up-to-date with the latest developments, including advice on using content from social media and comment moderation. Whether you are an experienced journalist who had legal training before online publishing was a consideration or are simply in need of a media law refresher, this course will tell you all you need to know.
