unofficial working draft of ideas for PMW interface

. . .


These are not official Pacific Media Watch pages, but a working draft of ideas for a new interface to Pacific Media Watch at the new Pacific Media Centre.

Under AUT's Communications Information Research Institute, the Pacific Media Centre was set up as a training and research resource for New Zealand journalists wanting to further their familiarity with reporting local Pacific Islands communities, and, for Pacific Islands journalists seeking international standard qualifications.

Pacific Media Watch has benefited from more than a decade of volunteer contributions, notably from PMC director, associate professor David Robie, ABC Four Corners researcher Peter Cronau, and occasional correspondents.


Now hosted at PMC, PMW currently has different access points, and no provision for leaving comments directly under stories. This working draft interface collates output from PMC and PMW in a single place.

This working draft is for viewing by AUT/PMC/PMW and not for public release without approval, and forms part of an application for the part-time position of database editor at PMW.

If an application is not successful, this agency will continue to offer contributions on a volunteer basis, including on web2 interfaces like this one.
