So you want to make a magazine for a school project. You were assigned a magazine project at school or you’ve decided to make one for a project yourself. That’s great! We’ll help you get started.
How to make a magazine for a school project
Making a magazine for a school project can be a lot of fun. Instead of just writing pages upon pages of text, a magazine gives you the opportunity to get creative with your school project. You can create magazine-style layouts, text columns, use different fonts and add images and illustrations, among other things. The question is, how do you actually make a magazine for your school project?
You could get started in Word, but getting the layout to look like a magazine can be difficult. You could also use Photoshop or Illustrator to make a magazine, but unless you already know how to use those tools, it can take time to learn how to use them to make a magazine for your school project. Then there’s the matter of finding a printer that can turn your digital magazine into an actual printed magazine.
Online magazine editor
How are you going to make a magazine for your school project? That’s where Jilster comes in. Jilster is a free online magazine editor that anyone can use to make a magazine. You can even invite your classmates to the magazine and have them create their own pages. There’s a shoutbox too, where you can leave messages for other people working on the magazine.
Simply make an account and get started on your magazine. There’s no need to download any software, so you can get started right away. The online editor has all the tools you need to create an actual magazine, and it’s very easy to use.
Invite students, classmates and share your magazine online
Even if you’re working with international students, Jilster has got you covered. The editor is available in 3 languages; English, Dutch and German. So even if you don’t speak the same language, you can work together on the same magazine. Once your magazine is complete, you can create an online promotional page and share it on social media (for free). The school magazine(s) can be ordered as high quality prints or as web (low) quality digital PDF files.
There are many ways you can implement Jilster to be used for educational purposes.
