A lot of pundits have talked about âliberatingâ mass forms of media, so that everyday folk can participate in various journalistic endeavors. The idea is generally referred to as community journalism, and there are a few groups out there that have developed some fine resources for those who want to bring these opportunities to different communities. One such resource is the J-Learning website, which is housed at The Institute for Interactive Journalism at the University of Marylandâs College of Journalism. Under the direction of Jan Schaffer and her colleagues, they have worked together to create this community journalism primer. The site is divided into sections such as âPlan It!â, âBuild It!â, and of course, âPromote It!â Within each section, visitors will have the opportunity to learn the nuts and bolts of working on webpage layout, reporting community data, and advertising. Itâs a fine site, and it also includes a number of fine examples of how different community groups have used these tools.
