The BBC College of Journalism is comprised of learning and development materials created for BBC journalists. The subjects covered range from craft skills (e.g. writing or directing video) to subject briefings on critical events and topics such as climate change and the conflict in the Middle East, to the many ethical issues now facing journalists. BBC College of Journalism maintains its relevance and realism by being made, primarily, by working journalists. It includes hundreds of videos, audio clips, discussion pages, interactive modules, and text pages covering every aspect of TV, radio, and online journalism. Much of the material features BBC TV reporters, anchors, and hosts known around the world. The site is updated on a rolling, continuous basis with new coverage being determined by demand from journalists and by current events dominating the headlines.
