The Online News Association, a membership organization for digital journalists, has launched the redesign of its Web site, Journalists.org. The site seeks to connect online media worldwide, the association announced today.
The revamped Web site provides several new features. Members can connect by region and area of interest through discussion groups with real-time chats. A training section has been added to feature video and audio presentations, searchable by topic, source, and medium. Included are tips on multimedia storytelling from The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, and the BBC. Other features include a user-friendly membership directory and career center with searchable job postings.
“The site is the first step to giving ONA?s nearly 1,800 members — leading-edge journalists from around the world — new ways to share ideas, content, technology and news,? said ONA President Jon Dube, vice president of ABCNews.com. “And during 2009, we’ll continually build out the site to help our members learn how to find and use the latest industry tools available,” Dube said.
The Online News Association is the world?s largest association of online journalists. Membership includes news writers, producers, designers, editors, bloggers, photographers, scholars and others interested in the development of online journalism.
