Update on the site

[et_pb_section][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text]

You will notice some changes to the Arkansascovid.com home page today. This is the beta run of the new automation tools created by the School of Journalism and Strategic Media at the University of Arkansas.

It’s a work in progress!

So please tweet any comments or suggestions to @arkansascovid.

In the coming weeks and days, we will be adding back some of the features and data Misty had provided.

Details of the changeover are here and KUAF did a report on us as well.

Special thanks to Katy Seiter, Mary Hennigan, Abby Zimmardi, Kendal Heavner and Obed Lamy, the students working on the project this semester.

Also thanks to Austin Wilkins with the UA Mullins Library for his programming support.

And thanks to the Northwest Arkansas chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and Arkansas Soul for their financial support of our interns.

Keep your comments and suggestions coming!
