The JEDI Desk

NeimanLab reports that University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism has a new class to teach students “how to produce videos and other storytelling methods specifically for social media and emerging platforms.” It’s called the JEDI Desk, (Journalism for Mobile and Emerging Platforms), which focuses on everything from Snapchat and Facebook to 360-degree virtual reality video.

Annenberg students can earn a M.S. in Digital Social Media where you study management of social media, digital media, and online communities.

The Knight Digital Media Center, in partnership with the Graduate School of Journalism at UC Berkeley, offers training for journalists and journalism organizations to succeed in the new media environment.
