Rob Johnson, Director of Multimedia Technology, La Salle College High School "The entire layout is inviting for students and a mine of information and ideas for teachers/tutors. It is written in an accessible manner without talking down to its readers, and is obviously written by a journalist for journalism students, but would also be invaluable to a working journalist who was now having to tackle the demands of the convergent newsroom."
