wiutv3 is shared by University Television and the Department of Broadcasting at Western Illinois University. The department is responsible for all sports productions and a live 30-minute newscast Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Along with the video production, is the wiutv3 online crew responsible for writing stories for this web site. The class, BC 419 Online Writing, is under the direction of Professor Sam Edsall. Each student must write an online news or sports story each week. Included in the story should be a picture or illustration and a link or links to more information on the subject.
wiutv3 Online has changed this year. Starting this fall, the site is developed using OU Campus, a CMS platform which is quite different from web page applications such as Dreamweaver.
While using CMS for the online site, students in this class are using Dreamweaver to develop an online portfolio. Broadcasting students will post not only their resume, but examples of their video, audio and writing skills.
