E-News University was launched in September 2008 at Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia. It started as a project in the online journalism class at the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications under Battinto L. Batts Jr., an assistant professor.
The intent of this project is to provide students with a vehicle for learning the power of new media through hands-on experience. Students use this blog to record the daily events in their community and world around them. This news bureau is an alternative source of information in the emerging world of online media.
Membership in E-News University is limited to scholars, professionals, educators and students.
