Data journalism free learning opportunity


Data Stories Report

South Africa’s prominent media startup, Media Hack, has come up with an amazing learning opportunity for everyone interested in data journalism.

The email based six-part series on the basics of data journalism is absolutely free not just for journalists but for anyone who wants to communicate with data better. You can take the course from anywhere in the world.

“Data journalism is difficult to teach and difficult to learn. It often takes a lot more time than people have. So we wanted to see if there was a way to give people an easy introduction that didn’t take a lot of time or need a good internet connection to do,” Alastair Otter from the Media Hack told Data Stories.

The target audience is really anyone who wants to understand what data journalism is all about. So maybe they’ve heard about it but don’t know where to start.–Alastair

The company has no plan on removing the course but to keep improving and updating it over time. So anyone will be able to sign up for the series at any time, including next year and even beyond, Alastair further said.

So without further delay, embark upon your data journalism journey the quickest way by signing up here.
