WASHINGTON D.C. — The Online News Association, the world’s largest membership organization of digital journalists, today announced a $100,000 grant from the Excellence & Ethics in Journalism Foundation (EEJF) to create and aggregate a series of virtual training elements on journalists.org.
The grant will seed ONA’s efforts to develop and disseminate a web-based, searchable resource library that will give journalists around the world access to cutting-edge digital tools, training and strategies and expand benefits for its 2,000-plus members and the journalism community.
By 2014-15, ONA envisions a sophisticated library focused on digital journalism resources easily searchable by topic, synthesizing the tremendous knowledge and innovation cropping up daily in the industry. Training modules can take any format — text, socially curated content, Storify posts, embeddable presentations, audio and video — with an emphasis on interactive and innovative presentation.
