IB Notes: Ukraine Protests, Part 6

The political situation continues to change radically and often violently in Ukraine, as converged communicators in GEB3373 (International Business) and COM3332 (Communication Technology in Contemporary Society) are likely aware. In the latest developments, as reported by the BBC, armed rebels in eastern Ukraine have seized government offices and raised the Russian flags, and the Russian military has declared a state of “combat alert” on the Ukrainian border.

The live BBC coverage, with the link above, illustrates the full arsenal of options available to modern media as it covers breaking news. In a single screen, the BBC displays live video of the latest news reports. On the left is a live feed, containing photos, links to other stories, Tweets from the scene, analysis, and breaking news. Below the video screen, the page also includes an interactive session that enables viewers to comment online or submit a text message to the BBC. It’s an exciting illustration of the tools available in today’s world of communications.
