To teach citizens how to shoot news video, upload it to a blog and share it with others
The Participatory Culture Foundation will create tutorials teaching how to shoot, edit and upload video to a web site. The tutorials will discuss what equipment and software to use, how to format the video for the web, how to load that video onto your own or other web sites, and how to syndicate it to others. The training modules are designed to increase the number and quality of citizen news videos online and to help more communities have video coverage of important events that would not be broadcast on local television news stations. This project is part of the Knight Citizen News Network.
