Over the last two years nearly 400 NPR employees were involved in multi-day, often multi-week, digital literacy and skills training sessions to learn better ways to serve our audience in the digital space. This undertaking was made possible by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The grant is coming to an end, which also means the adjournment of the Knights in Training blog.
Our blog has documented reporters, producers and editors who've experimented in the digital space since the beginning of the "Knight" training in May 2008. Scroll through the posts and you'll see the many successes and challenges of our "Knights." You'll also see how the training evolved and adjusted to fit NPR's mission and priorities. This will be the last post for the foreseeable future. Thanks for following.

All the best,
