The Knight-Mozilla learning lab blends learning and training via live webinars featuring leading digital journalism thinkers and open-web innovators.
This four-week course will facilitate a fire hose of new thinking about the nexus of software, journalism and news. Over the next few weeks, you’ll be working on your own ideas to help shape the future of the news industry that we’ll invite you to pitch.
A knowledge (and love) of the open web is helpful for this course…an interest in learning more is essential.
