Examples of interactive journalism – Week 5

As always, add your own example for extra credit by providing a link in a reply to this post.

This week’s example — Wolves at the Door, from NPR — is multimedia but not interactive. It should make you think about design choices (using HTML and CSS). It has no video but it includes evocative sound and beautiful photos. The amount of text is minimal. Enjoy it on a large screen with headphones, or at least with your volume turned up. How do you feel about the experience? Do you think NPR should have added a map and maybe a few infographics to convey data about the wolf populations?
