Developing an Online Publication Collaborating among Students in Different Disciplines
In order to offer opportunities to practice collaboration skills to students of hypermedia engineering and students of journalism and mass communication, a cross-university course “Developing an Online Publication for Journalism” based on simulations of real-world design projects was organised in spring 2011. According the results, the simulations motivated both hypermedia and journalism students to learn and to develop their professional competencies and collaboration skills. A web service design project with special working methods was unfamiliar to the journalism students, who were dissatisfied with the division of work tasks and asked for more instructions and guidance.
