Data Journalism Fundamentals MOOC 2017


To re-run the Massive Online Open Course “Data Journalism Fundamentals” to reach even more Asian students and journalists. In the last course iteration, students had suggested languages they would like to see the course in. Based on these suggestions and the demographics of students last time, we decided to translate the course into Chinese (Traditional & Simplified), Hindi and Korean, to specifically make the course material easier for journalists and students speaking those languages.
