Welcome to JRN 1100 Technology in Journalism – Fall 2014   June 24th, 2013

Welcome to JRN 1100 – Technologies in Journalism and to the 2014 fall semester. This, technologically based, course will be both interesting and relevant to today’s journalistic standards. Students will learn to edit photos using Adobe Photoshop, design newspaper pages using Adobe InDesign, create 3D business cards using Adobe Illustrator and much more.

The first day of class is Thursday, August 14. Class will start promptly at 7 a.m., 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Class will be held in Wallace Hall, Room 106. Prof. Ava Tabb will instruct the 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. sections, and Prof. Jeff Herring will instruct the 8:30 a.m. section.

Students must earn a final course grade of “C” or better before taking most upper-level JRN classes. So, what are some of the ways to help you earn a “C” or better in this class?

  • Be on time for each class
  • Keep up with the readings
  • Participate in class discussions
  • Follow instructions in class and on assignments
  • Meet assignment deadlines
  • Study
  • Do your best

While these steps don’t guarantee a passing grade in this or any course, they will greatly improve the probability that you will pass JRN 1100.

One more thing, don’t hesitate to contact your professor when you have questions or don’t understand something before deadlines.
