I used a SNO site last summer at a scholastic journalism summer camp for high schoolers and met with tremendous success. By the end of the first day, the band of newbies was posting online content on the site. By the end of the week they were well on their way to becoming experts (even teaching me a thing or two), posting bios, stories with hyperlinks, photos galleries and interactive graphics; they created and embedded blogs, audio slideshows, podcasts, videos and more. These students had zero experience when they walked in the door. But because of SNO’s attractive, effective design, out-of-the box-usability, ability to accommodate a wide variety of multimedia content, detailed step-by-step how-to manuals and an extremely patient, experienced and helpful staff, the students were able to create a polished, professional site that positively dazzled. Because the SNO site took all the worry out of design, set-up, operation and maintenance, my students were able to focus on the fundamentals of journalism. Also, SNO’s basis in WordPress provides students with real-world experience in a widely-used Web publishing platform that will serve them well, personally and professionally. Thank you, thank you, thank you, SNO.
