Participants learned how to create and publish stories with tools such as Audioboom, Soundclouds, Wavepad, KineMaster. All of those tools weren’t familiar to them before.

In the first day of this digital journalism training, the fellows should create a video with KineMaster tool. They were divided in to some group, two persons for a group. Then their exercise must be uploaded to APJC Youtube account.
