Goal

To support the Knight Digital Media Center's operational costs during the planning of its transformation into a revamped and self-sustaining program

The Knight Digital Media Center offers workshops to mid-career journalists to enhance their expertise and multimedia skills. Our goal is to provide the foundation of technical skills and story-telling techniques required by New Media platforms. We are housed at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. We also provide tutorials and video presentations from industry experts.

The Knight Digital Media Center was launched in April 2006 to focus on helping journalists succeed in the rapidly changing media landscape of the 21st Century. It is built on the foundation of the Western Knight Center for Specialized Journalism which trained more than 750 professional journalists between 2000 and 2006, as well as providing at least 75,000 more journalists with access to resources and online training opportunities through the efforts of its fellows.
