Allen Robson's curator insight, April 21, 2013 4:36 PM

This website offers tips and tricks in perfecting your writing for the web. The site gives in-depth information on successful web writing under the categories of Developing Your Content Strategy, Identifying Your Users’ Top Tasks, Helping Readers Scan and Using Plain Language. I found the site’s information very similar to that of our text book, but the site's information is more readily available to anyone anywhere.

People who are new to formal modes of writing can find it hard to develop meaningful content with the correct grammar. This not only includes people who are new to the corporate world but might also include students, people working in a formal job environment for the first time and even blue collar workers who might be willing to send a correspondence to their senior staff. Even if English is your native language the chances are that you might make grammar and spelling mistakes or might find it hard to even write an email which may be formal, cordial and balanced. If you require a tool for helping you out with spelling and grammar issues, then you might be interested in Grammarly

NPR gets $1.5 million digital grant - Radio & Television Business Report

NPR gets $1.5 million digital grant - Radio & Television Business Report | Get your Write Up! | Scoop.it

NPR is expanding its training initiatives to boost the production of digital content by NPR member stations and in the NPR newsroom. The initiative to increase the use of digital tools in public radio newsrooms is being funded by a new $1.5 million grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

 

“NPR is a great news organization and has become an essential part of American democracy. We want to support their embrace of the Internet,” said Alberto Ibargüen, President and CEO of Knight Foundation. “They will solidify their lead if they continue to expand their use of digital and social media to effectively engage listeners and users.”

 

Building on successful training piloted by NPR a few years ago, the grant provides for the development of extensive training for more than 70 local public radio stations. Topics include strategies to build multimedia news operations, writing for the web, photography and the role of social media in newsgathering. NPR says these resources will dramatically improve the ability of participating stations to broaden and deepen their news production and better serve both new and existing audiences. The grant will also fund digital coaches for NPR journalists.
