The training provided through eCampus is geared toward teaching techniques for today’s fast-paced, multi-platform journalism.

In one series, “Basic Video Techniques,” with Ole Miss broadcast/online prof Deb Wenger, you’ll learn about basic techniques for beginning to capture and edit video, more advanced shot composition and framing, and how to maximize Flip cam performance.

Another series on social media and Web tools is taught by longtime freelance journalist and social media trainer Jeff Cutler. He goes through the finer points of how to optimizes search engines, networking sites and many free online tools to enhance your reporting.

More on-demand video training will be added in the coming months and years. The first round of video training was made possible by a grant from the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation.
