The Knight Foundation report on digital training concluded a strong need remains in the industry and that journalists are willing to be trained however it is provided. The survey of journalists found them critical of their companies' efforts to provide such assistance.
The report observes: "Professional development has impact. It helped journalists learn the multimedia skills needed to create new, engaging story forms. It provided the entrepreneurial skills needed to start new local news ventures. It taught university professors the digital fluency needed to teach the latest best practices. Training helped journalists investigate wrongdoing and prompt policy change."
It concludes that pushing the reset button has never been easier, meaning that the technology to train is accessible and its impact more significant than ever.
