USU student-journalist creates an interactive map of the regional media
Maria Lisovenko, a third year student developed and published an interactive map for the website of the Ulyanovsk regional branch of the Union of Journalists of Russia, which contains all editorial offices of the media in the Ulyanovsk Region. The goal of the initiative is to make it easier for young journalists and readers to search for media, because most of them are not marked on ordinary maps.
“I worked in the Yandex map designer and on the Tilda platform, I registered all the codes myself. The convenience of the map is that at the points where the editorial offices are marked, there is a link to the media website and detailed contact information” said the student.
The impetus for the creation of an interactive map was the task given by Oleg Samartsev, the professor of USU, chairman of the regional branch of the Union of Journalists, which consisted in testing new media formats and filling the site ulruj.ru . Other products of students’ creative activities include an interactive calendar, a vacancy profile, and quizes.
