Roanoke Times uses multimedia to mark Virginia Tech anniversary

The Roanoke Times has set up a multimedia blog as part of its coverage of the one-year anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings.

The One Year Later site aims to ‘capture the sights, sounds and events… as captured over a 24-hour period’ and is using a combination of videos and text stories to create an emotive memorial.

A live story map plotting the Times’ coverage has also been produced, in addition to a map aggregating external news coverage of the anniversary.

The blog also links to a guestbook for readers and archived content from the paper on the shootings.
