More online-only discussion

Rich Cameron (who doesn’t post nearly enough) writes about the latest round of “online-only” discussions going on among California community colleges. His take is reasoned, balanced, and accurate. I encourage you to go read it.

We’re still a long way from the point where an online-only student news source will be the dominant format for news on campus. In the meantime, I’m currently enamored of “reverse publishing” – putting things up on the web, then repackaging for print publication. It’s the opposite of the way many college news sites operate, but the industry is moving more and more to this format. Students should be trained for that type of copy flow.
