HND students to learn digital journalism:


Over 300 Higher National Diploma (HND) students of Mass Communication Department, Federal Polytechnic, Oko are expected to be trained on digital or online journalism.
The proposed training is timely in view of the growing trend in online journalism all over the world. In online journalism,
editorial contents are distributed via the Internet as opposed to publishing via print or broadcast. What constitutes 'digital journalism' is debated by scholars. However the primary product of journalism, which is news and features on current affairs, is presented solely or in combination as text, audio, video and some interactive forms, and disseminated through digital media platforms. Whether you like it or not, you will need online journalism for those who want to practise effective journalism. This is why the Rector, Prof.Godwin Onu is laying such foundation to make sure that our products stand unequaled with products from other Institutions.
