for Education in International Media <http://ieimedia.com>(ieiMedia) have
announced a new partnership that will enable college students to earn 3

   - *Urbino**, **Italy** *(June 30-July 30, 2009)

The Institute, a pioneer in converged media education, has been sending
students abroad since 2001.

The programs in Armagh and Urbino is a continuation of the ieiMedia
philosophy of sending students to communities that are off the beaten
tourist track, allowing them to immerse themselves in the local culture.
Students will learn various aspects of digital storytelling -- including
photography, video, writing for the Web, blogging and Web design -- and will
produce an online multimedia documentary about the local community (see *
www.InArmagh.net* <http://www.InArmagh.net> and
www.InCagli.net<http://www.incagli.net/>for examples of work from
previous years). Students will also study

Italian language (Urbino).

The cost of the program* *is* *$4,475 plus airfare. For more information and
