Get your promo code to celebrate Training Tuesday: 30 percent discounts on courses

2:48 PM Nov. 26, 2010 — by Howard Finberg

With the holiday season upon us, Poynter’s News University introduces Training Tuesday, a new "shopping" tradition that follows in the footsteps of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Training Tuesday, which starts Nov. 30, kicks off that period when work slows and, we hope, there might be a little more time for self-directed training. And self-directed e-learning is what we do best.

In celebration, Poynter's NewsU is giving you 30 percent discounts on NewsU’s Webinar replays, training packages, NewsU Tech courses and seminar snapshots. We have more than 80 Webinars in our library and dozens of seminar snapshots so there are lots of topics to explore. We even have software and technical training in NewsU Tech.

To take advantage of this offer, use discount code PTUESEOY30 to receive 30 percent off Webinar replays, training packages and seminar snapshots from Nov. 30-Dec. 31, 2010. (That's a three and a zero at the end of the code.)

And every Tuesday we'll have a special discount code sent via Twitter from our @newsuniversity account or posted on our Facebook page.

From Nov. 30 – Dec. 31, 2010, fill your stocking with featured training courses such as Writing Headlines for the Web: 2010 Edition, Conquering Writer's Block and Introduction to Digital Ad Sales. Other courses in which you can use this discount include:

* What Makes a Great Blog: Principles for Success
* Jumpstarting Your Freelance Career: Marketing and Business Basics
* Managing Comments on Your News Site
* Mobile Media 101: Producing News with Your Smartphone

Training Packages * APME Online Credibility Series
* Mobile and Multimedia Essential Tools Series
* Video Storytelling Workshop: 2010 Package

Seminar Snapshots
* Social Media and Journalism: What Works and Why
* Quick Quality Video News Stories
* Plagiarism in the 21st Century
* Evaluating Multimedia Work in Your Curriculum

See our full list of courses and enjoy the gift of learning this holiday season and sharpen your skills for a busy 2011.

Fine print: The discount for Webinars applies to our Replays. It does not apply to upcoming Webinars. The code is not valid for our video tutorial series [which is really very inexpensive already].
