CueDigital is the name given to Internet platforms run by the JMS New Media Lab during the National Arts Festival. CueDigital runs in parallel to Cue newspaper during the National Arts Festival, which is held annually in Grahamstown in July. The idea behind CueDigital is to provide electronic platforms and promotion for the content published in Cue, which is an excellent overview of the festival and is made up mainly of reviews and profiles written by arts writers and student reporters. CueDigital includes a website, mobile site, online advertising, and social media and networking channels. CueDigital syndicates Cue newspaper content and original multimedia to South African online news and entertainment websites. The team also produces and promotes original stories and complementary multimedia (audio slideshows, online video, podcasts) and curates content from CueTV, CuePix and CueRadio.

Cue newspaper has run for the past 20 years and is a successful, must-read for festival goers.

Cue Online is powered by a Drupal CMS, and hosts text, images, video and audio. It is the online realisation of a converged newsroom and provides students with an excellent learning platform.
