The Southeast Michigan Media Lab is a community outreach project of Digital First Media, which includes news websites across Michigan. The idea behind the lab is to bring the audience in the newsroom. We are looking for blogging partners and community contributors. We provide free training and workshops on new media, including social media, video, podcasting, reporting, editing, citizen journalism, livestreaming video and hosting live text chats. We introduce you to free digital tools to help you communicate your message and we can offer a vehicle to share your communications.
