On Thursday Apr.12th, all of the hard work that both the Tyee Tablet and Rabble Tablet groups put into creating Tablet series for the news organizations rabble.ca and thetyee.ca was unveiled to the public at the North Campus Building at Western University.
For the Master of Arts in Journalism class of 2011-2012 it was an incredible milestone, not only in term of being able to produce artful tablets using iBooks Author software (that added value to the publications)—-but also because it was the final project for us before graduation!
Karl New introduced both of the groups, and Gillian Wheatley and Matthew Dusenbury led the Tyee and Rabble presentations respectively. Let’s just say that more than a few mouths dropped in awe!
It’s been a wild digital ride, kiddos. But we made it!!!
The rabble.ca iBook team leader, Matt Dusenbury, fields questions on how far the project has evolved and what he’s learned throughout the process. He also answered how this will help the class as we venture out into our careers and how it’ll set us apart in the new age of journalism, where technology plays such an important role.
Matt Dusenbury gives a little demonstration of the Rabble.ca iBook he and his group members have been working on the past three months.
