At the Center for Media Innovation and Research we are developing tomorrow’s journalism and communication forms. We are working to create new ways of telling the stories that journalists tell, to develop new ways of disseminating strategic communications and to research the effectiveness of both.
Over the next couple of years, this site will push the limits of digital media, providing an outlet for student and faculty projects that tell stories in new ways. Projects will utilize text, real-time and edited video, podcasts, mash-ups and other types of Web-based data-integration applications, mobile media, 3-D imagery and virtual worlds, animation and graphics. Web content will be archival, immediate, fully interactive, community-based and global.
The digital labs will serve as a nucleus of innovation and collaboration. The Web site will provide a medium for research. And the consortium participants will conduct and discuss research on digital topics related to online journalism, online advertising, political communication, public-health education, public-interest communications and social-change messaging, among other areas.
