Highlights from the final project

My apologies for the delay, but Winter Quarter students completed their final projects several weeks ago and delivered some strong and unique content.

Here are some of the highlights.


Listen up: First podcasts are here

In the brief but illustrious history of Sports Blogging at DePaul, the podcast assignment has generated some of the best content. This quarter is no exception, as students produced arguably the best collection of audio clips in course history. While most students opted for solo podcasts, the content and energy was on point.

Take a listen:

News reactions roundup

The blogs are up and running, as students are reacting to key news items in their coverage area. There have been big NBA trades, Royal Rumble surprises, college basketball news and more.

Let’s take a look:

A plethora of podcasts

Students recently put together their first podcasts, either in pairs or by themselves. This continues to be one of the most successful assignments. Congrats to all the students for delivering some excellent content.

Students recently reached out to media members who cover their blog topic and wrote Q&As/profiles. They collected excellent information about blogging and sports journalism.
