The Tennessee Journalism Series is a set of texts and instructional material developed by the faculty of the University of Tennessee School of Journalism and Electronic Media for journalism and instructors around the world. The idea behind the series is “multimedia first.” That is, these books are built for the iPad and contain a variety of multimedia elements: text, audio, video, photo galleries, interactive images, and interactive reviews and quizzes.
At present, 9 books are available on the iBooks Store for downloading to an iPad (read more about each by clicking on the titles):
Kindle and print versions of these books are also available, but they, of course, do not contain all of the multimedia elements found in the iPad versions. These versions do have links to some of the multimedia elements that can be found on the web.
Other books under development include texts on sports journalism, audio journalism and video journalism. Various aspects of the history of journalism and journalism ethics will also appear as titles in this series.
