Boston’s Disabled Commuters

LENS Web site shows multimedia talent

College of Communication students enrolled in a spring semester photo editing class taught by Peter Smith, an assistant professor of photojournalism, finished the course by producing multimedia slide show stories for their Web site, LENS. The classroom became a newsroom as students took on the roles of producer, editor, and Web designer. The class pieced together photo stills and audio and video clips to produce two group projects and six individual presentations, all of which can be accessed from the LENS Web site.

For their final project, Erin Edwards (COM’07) and Katrina Grigg Saito (UNI’07) examined the challenges disabled pedestrians face while navigating the busy streets of downtown Boston. To learn more, click on the slide show above.
