     An Entrepreneurial Journalism class taught by Jeff Jarvis at the City University of New York's new Journalism School covers the opportunities the Internet provides many aspiring Journalist, outside the world of blogging. Many online versions of magazines and newspapers use the Internet to spread their awareness and advertising,  gaining money through organizations and online subscriptions in hopes of making it into print media.
