School will soon be in session and we want to go back to class with you. Last year, we launched our Educational Program, offering discounted Online Training subscriptions to students and instructors at accredited universities. Since then, journalism and multimedia programs around the country have made MediaStorm Online Training a part of their teaching strategy.
In addition to full access to our library of training videos, we’ve added a complimentary companion curriculum for educators featuring quizzes and assignments developed by Beatriz Wallace of Duquesne University and Steve Rice at the University of Missouri – Columbia. Wallace had this to say about her experience using our Online Training in the classroom:
MediaStorm Online Training captures students with seductive, rebellious and non-judgmental enthusiasm and faith in the possibilities of storytelling. The training videos drive the curriculum, assignments and final products.
MediaStorm’s training videos constitute clear directives that prepare students for in-class assignments, editing, production and publication. Students watch video modules for homework: Reporting (Audio, Stills and Motion), Post-Production and The Making of a Thousand More. They complete quizzes on each segment and receive checklists that match the training videos to structure their field workflows. And I get to spend three hours per week learning from and building relationships with students in class. We execute structured assignments that practice skills covered in the training videos.
