Wikinews:Water cooler/assistance/archives/2013/November


Audio?

When might Template:Article-audiobrief be used?? It throws up "This article features in a News Brief- - - blah blah"...that confuses me.--Bddpaux (talk) 05:39, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

This, I think, is part of where educational use of Wikinews should push towards. 'Shorts', for want of a better term, are horrible; a handful of sentences backed by two sources has a not-dissimilar review burden to a full, basic three-paragraph, article. Briefs, with the ability to use them as an audio script, have each piece only needing reviewed against the Wikinews article. Review is where schools/colleges/universities using Wikinews may have a problem; we really could do with several institutions running students through the project for at least a couple of years. If they're geographically dispersed, so much better — they'll challenge each-others', perhaps parochial, world-views. --Brian McNeil / talk 12:16, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
