Event description


For SABEW’s August training session, we’ve teamed up with the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism to present a webinar via the Adobe Connect video-conference platform. The session will introduce business reporters and editors to new web tools and apps that are mostly free, easy to learn, and fun to use. The digital tools will simplify many of the tasks that business journalists must perform, including social media posting, recording and transcribing interviews, and scanning documents.
