ABSTRACT
The development of online journalism has generated a convergent media environment. This study is based on the assumption that the development of this new form of journalism plays a pivotal role in the transformation of the dynamics of professional practices, news production process as well as audience use and participation. It concentrates on investigating how and the extent to which this role is observed and can be explained in the context of Northern Cyprus. In this regard, it is argued that the prevalent journalism education curriculum offered in universities should be structured and diversified to include online journalism. Consequently, such will enable an increased focus on this environment in which multimedia opportunities, interactivity and hypertext possibilities can be found. On the other hand, while the concept of ‘Citizen Journalism’ has increased in parallel with the widespread use of new media opportunities such as social media; the findings in the present study suggest that the education on internet technology should be spread throughout the different social layers of society.
