As part of the training on online radio funded by the UNESCO International Programme for the Development of Communication (IPDC) and organized in collaboration with journalists from Radio Canada, teachers and technicians of the Higher Institute of Information and Communication (ISIC) in Rabat produced a radio programme on The Impacts of Online Radio in the Moroccan Society which was webcasted live on 7 October.
The main subject of the training was on the theories and practices of online radio, and the paradigm shift between the traditional and online media. Indeed the development of Internet news, including online TV and radio, has impacted the traditional ways of news consumption.
With webcast and streaming media over the Internet, news has become available on demand at any time anywhere. Live online radio opens up a new channel of communication, where interactivity between the producers and the audience is a standard. In this context journalism schools such as ISIC is broadening their range of training topics to include online journalism and social media.
