In 2006, the BBC established the College of Journalism, a website on the BBC's intranet, in order to develop and distribute training materials to its global network of journalists. Recognizing the value that the materials would have to all journalists and journalism students everywhere, the BBC made the website available to subscribers through a partnership with Oxford University Press. The subjects covered by the College of Journalism range from craft skills (e.g. writing or directing video) to briefings on critical events and topics such as climate change and the conflict in the Middle East, to the many ethical issues now facing journalists. —Content includes hundreds of videos, audio clips, and discussion and text pages
