TOP REVIEWS FROM GATHERING AND DEVELOPING THE NEWS
I really enjoyed learning the inside parts to gathering and developing the news! This has taught me very valuable information on how to gather and put together news.
I like the course and the teachers. I don't like the peer review because most of the students don't work hard enough on their reviews. I do want the challenge and the feedback.
this course helps me to stand again to pursue my dream job. I am very thankful to Michigan university.
This course was a great follow up to the first one. Knowing where to go to find sources is very important. I was especially intrigued by the section on crowd-sourcing content.
