Post 2: Aggregation

Worth 25 points

News aggregation is a term used to describe human or computer generated collection and republishing of online information. It is an active way for reporters to do research on a subject. Learn what others are writing about and saying then share it. The reporter provides a service for the audience by finding and organizing the best information on a topic. The hyperlinks help generate authority and traffic.

Write a post that pulls together and organizes online information that is useful for your reader. Your post must include at least five (5) hyperlinks. Upload a photo to add some artwork to the post. Take your own photo, follow fair use guidelines, or use Creative Commons image. Give photo credit in the caption.

Grading Criteria:

  • Does the post organize useful information for readers?
  • Post contains at least 5 links that are properly formatted.
  • Photo or artwork with proper credit. It must be original or follows fair use or Creative Commons guidelines.
  • See Free Choice grading rubric for specifics.
