About the Post

Author Information

I'm an assistant professor at the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, where I teach and research how news sites can better reach their audiences. I received my Ph.D. from the Missouri School of Journalism at the University of Missouri where I was one of the founding editors of MyMissourian.com, a citizen journalism site for Columbia, Mo. Before graduate school, I worked as a community newspaper editor in Southern Utah and Southern California.

Bobcat Bucket List, How to Ohio U showcase Scripps’ online ability

First off, my apologies for not updating more frequently. I have an excuse, I hate to call it a good one, that I’ve been meaning to explain for a while now. One of these days, I’ll finish that draft.

Until then, I’ll showcase the work that students in my classes have accomplished this quarter, the last at Ohio University, and last.

This is just one of the stories featured on Bobcat Bucket List.org, a site designed by students in my JOUR415/515 class.

Just yesterday, students in my Online Journalism Practicum class completed the Bobcat Bucket List, a site containing tips on the things everyone needs to do before leaving Ohio University. I really like the look, feel, and content of the site. A special tip of the hat to my lead designers Brenda Evans and Ashley Novack!

Last quarter, students in the same class got all the content ready for How to Ohio U, a site explaining the ins and outs of life in Athens, Ohio. Unfortunately, I dropped the ball on publishing this site, but this quarter, our lead designer Dylan Souhrada (He’s also a Web developer behind Project C) completed and posted the site.

Please check the sites out and let me know what you think.
