The International Center for Journalists offered two online courses for U.S. journalists on using multimedia tools this past summer. The courses were for Hispanic and minority journalists in the U.S., and were conducted in both English and Spanish. The courses focused on a variety of multimedia offerings – from audio focused specifically on using multimedia and digital tools to cover personal finance issues, and will took place from June 28 through July 21.
The Spanish and English courses were led by multimedia journalist Rosalba Ruiz, who has been a multimedia producer for Voice of America (VOA) and a multimedia reporter for California's Orange County Register. She is a bilingual multimedia journalist with over 10 years of media experience.
