The Knight Digital Media Center offers workshops to mid-career journalists to enhance their expertise and multimedia skills. Our goal is to provide the foundation of technical skills and story-telling techniques required by New Media platforms. We are housed at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. We also provide tutorials and video presentations from industry experts.
The Knight Digital Media Center was launched in April 2006 to focus on helping journalists succeed in the rapidly changing media landscape of the 21st Century. It is built on the foundation of the Western Knight Center for Specialized Journalism which trained more than 750 professional journalists between 2000 and 2006, as well as providing at least 75,000 more journalists with access to resources and online training opportunities through the efforts of its fellows.
The tutorials on this site are designed to supplement the in-person training seminars put on by the center, and as a service to the journalism community, communication professionals and the public in general.
KDMC also maintains a directory and aggregator of blogs and hyperlocal sites focusing on the Bay Area and surrounding environs. BNN provides remixed RSS feeds by topic or geographical area.
We welcome comments on the tutorials and other aspects of this site. Just click the contact link at the bottom or top of the page.
