One-year remembrance of the Good Friday tornado that hit Murfreesboro on April 10, 2009. The project was originally proposed by associate professor Ken Blake. Students from a reporting class team-taught by assistant professors Leon Alligood and Jennifer Woodard (EMC) interviewed survivors of the tornado. The students prepared their stories in a variety of media, from text to soundslides to audio files.
Assistant professor Phil Loubere then created the multimedia online project with the help of one of his students, Floris Moriceau. This interactive graphic is also created without proprietary code, and will play on any device.
A print version of the graphic ran in the Murfreesboro newspaper, the Daily News Journal, along with six of the students’ stories, and the project was promoted and linked to from the paper’s website.
