AEJMC “Best of the Web” Winners

San Marcos Online

I am happy to report that , not one, but two Graduate Student teams from the SJMC at Texas State are winners in the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication’s Best of the Web competition. San Marcos Online, created by Jason Cain, Irene Kosela, Marc Speir and Jordan Viator took 1st place in the Journalism category.

Thread Austin

Thread Austin by Kerri Battles and Dee Kapila received 3rd place in the Journalism category. These students took an Advanced Web Design course with me in the fall, and these projects were the culmination of that semester. In the class, the students worked with XHMTL, CSS, Flash, PHP, MySQL, Javascript, and advanced multimedia editing. I’m proud of the accomplishments of both teams, and I look forward to presenting their work at the AEJMC national convention in Chicago.

The Best of the Web competition recognizes outstanding work in Web design. Academic programs around the country submitted entries. The Journalism category is the most competitive in the competition. Other categories were Department or School Site, Teaching Site, and Creative Sites. More information on the program can be found at
