BBC Hindi shares online journalism expertise with India students

BBC Hindi’s website, www.bbchindi.com, has joined forces with its online partner, Webdunia, to conduct online journalism workshops for students in India. Teams of bbchindi.com and Webdunia are holding special sessions at universities and journalism schools in Madhya Pradesh and Delhi, beginning March 6.

The sessions would provide the students with an insight into how the online works, and give them hands-on training in how best to write for web audiences, BBC said in a statement. At the end of the workshop, the students will be assigned with special subjects to write on, and the best three pieces will be published on bbchindi.com.

“I am delighted that the strong partnership between BBC Hindi Online and Webdunia will now benefit India’s budding online journalists. I am looking forward to sharing with them BBC’s editorial standards, which are the backbone of the BBC Hindi journalism, and I hope they will be able to implement these principles of objectivity in their future careers, further raising the benchmark of Hindi-language journalism,” bbchindi.com, Editor, Salma Zaidi said.

“We are extremely pleased to organise the journalism workshop with bbchindi.com. Universities offer several courses for print and audio-visual journalism, but students do not have enough practical knowledge of online journalism. I am sure that this workshop will prove very beneficial in this direction.” Vinay Chhajlani, CEO, Webdunia, said.

BBC has been running news web services in Bengali, Hindi, Nepali, Tamil and Urdu.
