The increasing uptake of the internet globally has seen a corresponding rise in its use as a publishing tool. With this, the centuries-old traditional media landscape has witnessed a shift in both methods of delivery and a democratization of publishing power.

To a large extent however, the processes, values and ethics that have been a part of the industry for centuries have not been passed on with the same rapid pace leading to abuses of the responsibilities that come with publishing and a marked difference in quality of output.

As online news media begin to gain dominance and their impact grows stronger, the need to ensure that that same ability is executed with professional responsibility has never been greater.

In addition, the characteristics of the audience that consume news online are somewhat different, shaped by the nature of the technology and the new culture of its users. This presupposes therefore that additional skills are required by professionals whose knowledge has been shaped by academic and field experience suited for traditional platforms.

OBJECTIVE

The Digital News Media Project (DNMP) is an International Institute of Journalism (IIJ) -certified course, conceptualized to create a generation of online content creation professionals who will learn and apply the required skills for quality and ethical online content generation and distribution. It is designed to enhance the practical skills of personnel operating within newsrooms of whether strictly online platforms or traditional media houses with online editions (which are gradually becoming stand alone editions too these days) or corporate organizations that generate content for their owned media platforms.

DNMP will address knowledge, professional and ethical gaps with a view to improving the overall quality of digital news and information production and distribution.
