The Knight Center – “Massive, country-wide protests are planned and it would be impossible to have correspondents placed at each demonstration. Like many newsrooms these days, you plan to comb social media for photo and video evidence that can provide a national picture of what’s going on. But how can you make sure the images you’re seeing are truly from the place and time they say? Learning how to verify content from online sources is more important each day, especially as the amount of false content on the internet grows. The new massive open online course (MOOC) from the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas and First Draft’s Claire Wardle will arm you with the tools and skills necessary to verify online content and use it ethically in professional, published reports.
- Register now for the four-week course “Navigating Misinformation: How to identify and verify what you see on the web,” which runs from March 25 to April 21.”
