One of these was an in-depth look at how the recession is affecting New Yorkers. Five different digital media newsroom sections covered five topics surrounding “The Big Hurt”: housing, small business, unemployment, the arts, and people changing careers as a result of being laid off.

The structure of the course allows for you to produce and in-depth digital profile, but also learn the skills required to create a story using digital media storytelling.
