SNO Student Academy

Calling all student journalists!

Whether students are new editors headed into next year or seasoned staff veterans, we hope they’ll join SNO’s technical trainers Andrea and Kyle this summer for an intense, single-day workshop. We’ll help participants learn and immediately put into practice methods to manage and improve the design and function of their website. 

The day’s instruction will introduce students to the FLEX Pro design tools — Story Page Templates, Design Drafts, Header and Footer Designers, Widget Area Designer and Custom Page Layouts — and cover some of the latest site design must-haves and trends. We’ll also give everyone time to chat with other participants and practice what they learn. 

Students will be sure to walk away with some fresh ideas for their site, plus all the skills and knowledge they’ll need to implement them.
