The Mustang Daily at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo has been busy over the past few days covering a brush fire and a visit by a famous alumnus – Weird Al Yankovic. Check out the audio slideshows here: Fire and Yankovic. Deadline multimedia is a good way to get students involved in producing for the web first.
One slight complaint – the stories on the site don’t have links to the multimedia presentation. For instance, this story: Fire spreads on hills, inches toward Poly Canyon, doesnt’ contain a link to the audio slideshow, which would be a great addition to the story.
Thanks to Paul Bittick for the heads-up.
