Knight Center Announces Free Online Investigative Journalism Class, May 12-June 14

Starting May 12, the latest massive open online course (MOOC) from the Knight Center – this one on investigative journalism in the digital age. I took their last course on social media for journos and was pleasantly surprised by the content, the teachers, and the process overall.

From Media Bistro:

If you’ve ever wanted to learn the nuts and bolts of investigative reporting, here’s your chance, courtesy of the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas.

 A five-week, massive open online course (MOOC) on “Investigative Journalism for the Digital Age,” will begin on May 12 and end on June 14, 2014. 

From Knight:

Investigative journalism is the most highly-regarded branch of the profession, often helping reveal corruption, shining a light on social plights, influencing public policy and triggering change. It takes time and effort, but also an understanding of the basic concepts and tools used to carry out investigations.

To help people interested in learning about the newest resources and techniques in the field, the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americaswill offer the free Massive Open Online Course (or MOOC) “Investigative Journalism for the Digital Age” with the support of the Knight Foundation.

The course will take place from May 12 to June 15, 2014. Click here to register.
