Online Media: Year-in-Review

The Tech focused more of its efforts on digital innovation and data journalism in 2012 with the creation of a new Online Media team focused on developing The Tech’s online presence using multimedia, social media, and interactives. Beginning with the religion project, we produced a series of videos and interactive graphics on religion on campus based on a schoolwide survey. At the end of spring, we covered President Reif’s inauguration using traditional print media mixed in with audio podcasts, videos, and interactive graphics. In the fall, we investigated and visualized stress at MIT based on another schoolwide survey in our “Under Pressure” project.
