Technologies such as longform.org and Instapaper have renewed an interest in “long-form journalism”. But what is it? The Poynter Institute has posited that it is both journalism of long length and high quality while having ‘staying power’ online. How does this relatively dry definition actually translate to users? How is design and user experience considered when constructing pages and templates for these stories? How does the editorial process differ and adapt to web-based journalism?

The conversation will start by looking at various long-form projects by CNN to understand our current UX approach. Particularly project challenges for each piece will be raised and addressed. Overall, this session is unique because we are not doing traditional project design driven UX, but we still need to apply to UX to journalism pieces as well as forge a productive relationship with an editorial department that has not had to really consider the relationship to UX previously.
