High school students of all grade levels have the opportunity to learn about the world of digital media in Waubonsie Valley’s Media Communication and Production course. It enables students to work with Warrior Update and the entire WVTV family.

Students who register for 2021-2022 for the year-long class will get the chance to use professional-grade cameras and computer editing software to create a wide variety of projects, such as commercials, short films, news stories and music videos.

This college dual-credit course, in conjunction with the College of DuPage, is designed to provide students an introduction to storytelling and journalism using various forms of digital media, such as video, film, podcasting and other online media. Students will also develop media literacy and the skills necessary to create productions in a changing media environment.

Classroom work is exhibited within the school, locally, nationally and internationally on the school’s Web site, YouTube Channel, Twitter, Instagram and its weekly video news magazine, Warrior Update.
