Infographic: How to develop a digital journalism program

In a test drive of Piktochart, a web-based infographic creation tool, I created an infographic on how to develop a digital journalism program, which is based on my survey of 500+ communication and digital journalism programs in U.S., as well as a series of articles about digital journalism education and practices.

    Nice use of Piktochart. I’ve been playing around with it too – mainly to present details of our local school’s fundraising efforts. I’m hindered by the fact that I’m rubbish at visual/design stuff!! A radio journalist by profession so don’t really get pictures 🙂 Which template are you using here? Have you found a way of using it in class?

    The template I used is called Sky Fall. I have not found ways to incorporate infographics into my classes; it maybe because I myself am not a big fan of infographics. One issue I have with infographics is the lack of a consistent navigation scheme – each infographic is different from others that one needs to “learn” to read each and every inforgraphic.
