Welcome to the new Poynter.org – Poynter (blog)
After two years of work, plenty of long hours from The Poynter Institute staff and a generous grant from the Knight Foundation, the redesigned Poynter.org launched this morning.
We know what you’re thinking: Another redesign of Poynter.org? Didn’t you overhaul the site last year? Well, yes. But since then, we’ve been working on a parallel rebuild of Poynter.org aimed at bringing all the elements of The Poynter Institute — news, training and events — under the same beautiful roof. Regular users of Poynter.org should notice several important changes:
- Integration at the article-page level with training from Poynter and News University, Poynter’s industry-leading journalism education platform.
- A new homepage and revamped site architecture that foregrounds Poynter’s entire portfolio of news, training and events that includes prominent links for our membership and career platform, Media Jobs Connection.
- A single, unified sign-on for Poynter.org users who want to take courses with News University, join Poynter’s membership and attend events around the world.
- Newsletter sign-up integration on Poynter.org’s article pages. If you like an article, scroll to the bottom and click to view our entire suite of newsletters.
As always, this redesign is a work-in-progress. We’re still working on several features that we plan to roll out in the coming months as we hear your thoughts and quibbles.
With this redesign, we aimed to make Poynter.org a comprehensive home for journalists around the world at every stage in their careers. We hope you like it.
