Students upgraded on online journalism

Luanda - At least thirty-two finalists in the higher education journalism course from different institutions based in Luanda were trained in an action called "Press Workshop", which was closed Saturday in the country's capital.

For 30 days, the participants received 90 percent of practical lessons on writing techniques for journalistic genres (between news, interview and reporting) and 10 percent of theory, with emphasis on the online component.

In order to improve their skills, a news portal is being set up where they will be trained for a further six months, according to the journalist and mentor of the project, Francisco Inácio.

He explained that the aim of this training is to help new graduates to implement the "excessive" theoretical load learned during the four years of course, in order to meet the demands of the labour market.

The organisation, he stressed, plans to extend the project to the whole national territory, with training in photojournalism scheduled for next year.
