More from this event →

It’s a developing art: creating mobile-friendly news interactives that deliver personalized info to users — often on complex issues — by guiding them through a series of questions or choices. Strong examples are DNAInfo’s “Here’s Where You Can Afford to Live Alone” and “Living a Like a Refugee,” a Q&A-driven interactive produced at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism that shows users the tough financial choices facing Syrian refugees in the U.S. Hear from the CUNY team about how to create and produce personalized interactives that can help users forge connections to the experiences of others, giving them a deeper, more visceral understanding of the news’ impact on people’s lives.
