Digiversity.tv and Earn Your Press Pass are offered free-of-charge as part of your membership to Missouri Press Association. Please let us know if you have or continue to use either Digiversity.tv or Earn Your Press Pass or both for yourself, your staff or contract employees.
Digiversity.tv focuses on the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of products, with Adobe trainer Russell Viers using videos that follow the same engaged, energetic teaching style MPA’s members have seen from him firsthand for more than 25 years. He and other presenters also cover various
topics in written articles and live webcasts.
While there is no cost to the newspaper, it is preferred every staffer using the website signs up with a unique email address.
In addition to the training and explaining in his videos, Viers regularly answers viewers’ questions, so feel free to reach out to him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Earn Your Press Pass
Missouri Press Association member newspapers also have access to Earn Your Press Pass, a web-based course that teaches the fundamentals of journalism.
Earn Your Press Pass is intended to fill the gaps for newspapers having difficulty recruiting trained journalists. The course provides new hires or freelancers the information and structure they need to sit down and complete lessons that teach the basics of good journalism. Everything from common newspaper terminology to story writing to media laws are covered in the materials.
Not intended as a college-level course, the goal of Earn Your Press Pass is to impart practical, usable knowledge to participants. Lessons are designed to take the layperson to a functioning newspaper reporter upon completion in a straight-forward and comprehensive approach.
