The Oakland Press Institute for Citizen Journalism
Interesting news from the worlds of citizen journalism and open source learning – the Oakland Press has just announced that they will be opening a classroom for citizen journalists. The newspaper will train anyone who’s interested in news writing, videography, photography and reporting basics. Once participants have finished their training they’ll have the chance to get published online or in the print version. More ambitious citizen journalists can also work their way up into becoming a freelancer for the paper.
