One of the chief missions of the Intercollegiate Online News Network is to advance the teaching of web and online journalism in schools of journalism and mass communication. To that end, we are maintaining a continuous stream of articles about online journalism below.
This stream is the work of various individuals associated with ICONN. If you would like to join this work, please get in touch with Jim Stovall at jgstovall at gmail.com.
On the right are some permanently placed sources of information, techniques, teaching tips and other material that may be helpful to instructors. If you would like to suggest material for this space, send the links and descriptions to Jim Stovall.
