Center for Media Innovation and Research

19 Apr

Even though the CMIR Lab has only been a part of UF’s College of Journalism and Communications since September of 2010, it is already making groundbreaking progress in the quest to explore our media possibilities. I’ve had the opportunity to learn about innovative journalism and report news in the facility.

The grand opening video shows the vast array of media opportunities with the CMIR lab and the direction the world of journalism is moving toward.

This semester I’m taking Advanced Online Media in the lab. In class, we’re able to bring colleagues’ blogs, sites and videos up on the multi-screen display and on individual Mac laptops at the round-tables in the lab.

And last semester I got to work on WUFT’s first-ever election team. We meshed print, TV and online media for the best coverage, plus had a LIVE broadcast on election night for local TV and radio stations.
