Starting in the 2011 Spring Semester, aspiring journalists enrolled in Peralta campuses will be able to take a new online class that will prepare them for the ever-changing landscape of news reporting. “Social Media for Journalists” (Journalism 65) will be taught by Shari Weiss and will focus on the “revolutionary changes going on in global communications and how this directly affects news gathering and distribution,” and will be worth three units. Regarding textbooks for the class, Weiss said she would not have one because the book would most likely be irrelevant now. Instead, Weiss says she is going to create the textbook as she teaches the class and what students will be studying are the most current resources available to journalists online.
