City Journal Online is produced by RMIT journalism students and run in conjunction with its sister-publication, City Journal newspaper.
To develop the site, students in the 2008 Online Journalism Production class undertook a comprehensive analysis of other student and professional news sites. Their recommendations formed the basis of the site’s design, content and multimedia.
Each semester, the site’s editorial direction is led by undergraduate students in the Online Journalism Theory and Practice and Converged Newsroom subjects, along with graduate students in Online Journalism. Students in Television Journalism and Advanced Television Journalism contribute their work for Channel 31 and students in Radio Journalism and Advanced Radio Journalism contribute their work for Melbourne community broadcaster Triple R.
