On Monday, December 2, at 5:30pm Central, students in the online graduate entrepreneurial journalism course will present their final pitches for the startups they’ve been working on all semester.
You can watch their pitches and offer feedback here; just sign in as a guest on Adobe Connect. Please be sure to mute your mic when you aren’t speaking or sometimes there is feedback.
Each pitch will be about 10-12 minutes, plus time for questions/feedback and there are three groups.
This is an online class with students from as far away as Darfur, so in some ways, co-working in teams has been more challenging than the on-campus class, even though we are lucky enough to have a number of digital collaboration tools.
Among our startups this semester we have a team working on online education in Nigeria; a site that will make it easy for event planners and bands to find musicians; and ITVNewz.com, a hyperlocal television news product offering original content from non-professionals.
