Please make sure you understand the assignment…. Please I need this by Tuesday.
- List the key news and informational resources utilized by professionals in the media and entertainment industries
- Use tools to develop a list of resources by bookmarking important websites, journals, and associations.
As a future leader in the industry, it's important to follow and stay-up-to-date with current events. RSS (Really Simple Syndication) readers, such as Feedly, can be very helpful for bookmarking and organizing resources. A reader will allow you to organize and follow the websites of your local and national TV news, magazines, newspapers, trade publications, and everything else in the digital world, without having to go directly to each individual website.
First Post — Set up your Feedly account & research a current event in the industry
Open a free Feedly.com account and complete the following:
- Identify and follow at least ten (10) different resources provided below on your Feedly account. These resources are ones that industry professionals use to stay informed of trends and important issues affecting their business. (After you add ten, you may eventually add your own favorite websites/blogs that aren't listed, but make sure they provide you the proper and credible information similar to those listed below.)
- Take a screenshot of your list (as seen in the example below) and embed it as an image. Do not upload as a link or document. Note that you can adjust the size after you've uploaded the image.
- Within the same post, explain which two resources you think will be most useful to you in your career and why. Provide direct links to those resources.
- Find a current event within Feedly.com (within the last three months) that is related to the industry you are studying. Include a direct link to the current event article you found.
- In 4-5 sentences summarize the current event in your own words.
- In 4-5 sentences Does this have a positive or negative impact on the organization, person or brand?
- In 4-5 sentences What are the short-term and long-term effects on the organization, person, or brand?
Getting Your Feedly Up & Running Transcript:
Hi there and welcome to the tutorial on how to get your Feedly set up.
Alright, so first off when you come to the Feedly website, you want to make
sure that you're setting up just the free account, OK. No need for the premium
account, just the free one will work perfectly.
Once you do that, you're going to come to this page and you're going to see
down the side that you have Feeds and you have the option of adding folders.
I've already added an Advertising and Sports, and you can create up to one
more folder using the free version. So, since we can do that and I like to stay
quite organized, I'm going to add another folder and I'm going to put
Festivals. OK, and we'll click save.
From here, you can click in any of your folders, and then you're going to click
follow website. You want to make sure you're following websites and the
reason for this is because these websites or, what would be publications or
whatnot, are going to be posting current information regularly and that's what
you want to follow. Then once you find an article you really like that they've
posted, you can always flag it or bookmark it if you will. But nonetheless, you
want to follow the websites.
So you can see that there are a bunch of industries, trends, skills, fun all listed
here, OK. You can even type in different ones which I will get to in a second.
But first off you see that I have Advertising so I'm going to click on the
advertising one, and see what it has here? Now it has some starter kits. So
starter kits include a variety of resources that Feedly has essentially already
curated for you, so you can choose to follow them all and they'll get added
into your folder here, or you may want to pick and choose, so click into each
of them, learn a little bit more about them, and then decide if you want to add
it, OK. Otherwise, you can go through them individually here.
I like Smashing Magazine, so I'm going to just type that in and see what
comes up so you can see for Smashing magazine it brings us to the YouTube
channel, their magazine for designers and developers, and their blog, so it
brings us to a variety of different elements of Smashing Magazine. So, I could
add all of them or I can add just the ones that I want to follow. OK, so for here
I'll just add…maybe these top two. In reality, I would want to go into them and
learn a little bit more about them, but I'll just add that top one in there.
OK, now I also like typography. I like to know what's going on in that world.
So, I'll type that topic in, and you can see that a variety of resources pop up for
me here. OK, I'm familiar with this website, so I'm going to go ahead and
follow and put it in my Advertising folder so you can see that it's growing.
Now when I click on Advertising, you're going to see that this is what's coming
up underneath these two resources that I'm following.
OK, if I wanted to add more to this folder once I've already started this
process, you would come to the left side and you're going to see that you
have different options here. So, you click on this little icon. It's going to take
you back to this screen that's searchable.
OK, so let's see, if we go to festivals or sports when we click on follow
websites, there isn't already a subject here for sports or festivals for that
matter, so that's what I'm going to type in this in the search, so I'll click Sports.
They too have a starter kit and then they have, you know, ESPN, Bleacher
Report, Deadspin… You name it they have it here, so you can choose ala carte
if you will, for the ones that you'd like to add, or you can go to their starter kit
and peruse them and say, actually, I'd like to follow all of them, so I'll follow all
or I will just pick and choose the ones that I'd like. OK, so for argument's sake
I'm going to follow them all so we can fill up some of these folders, OK, and
I'm going to type in Festivals, to see what comes up. We have a bunch of
music ones that come up right off the bat and we can scroll down. EDM the
whole nine are here, Variety. So, this sounds like something. I trust the Variety
brand. That's a reputable name in the entertainment world so I may want to
follow this one and put it under Festivals. OK, Rolling Stones. Same thing. Put
that under my festivals. That could also go under Entertainment or Music if
you wanted to have different ones here.
OK, so this is where you're going to be building all of those resources that
allow you to stay on the pulse of what's happening in the industries that are
important to you. And this is also where you'll be adding your 10 resources to
be able to show your classmates what it is that you'd like to share with them
for this particular activity, all right. Make sure you're diving into each of these
so you get to know each of your resources and the articles that they provide
and the information that they provide. All right, if you have any questions,
reach out to your instructor.
