О курсе

Never before has the need for News Literacy been more urgent. As news consumers are bombarded with a constant stream of fake news, propaganda, hoaxes, rumors, satire, and advertising — that often masquerade as credible journalism — it is becoming more and more difficult to distinguish fact from fiction. While the public’s faith in the news media erodes, purveyors of misinformation have helped give rise to troubling cultural trends and alarming political movements. This six-week course will help learners develop their critical thinking skills to enable them to better identify reliable information in news reports and to become better informed about the world in which we live. The course will discuss the key elements of journalism from the viewpoint of the news audience. The language of instruction is English, but Chinese and Spanish subtitles will be available. Each week will tackle a challenge unique to the digital era: Week 1: The power of information is now in the hands of consumers. Week 2: What makes journalism different from other types of information? Week 3: Where can we find trustworthy information? Week 4: How to tell what’s fair and what’s biased. Week 5: How to apply news literacy concepts in real life. Week 6: Meeting the challenges of digital citizenship....

Very informative and clear and there are some assignments to make us understand more. But there are too many links that we have to read, I prefer the video and examples and assignments.

Informative and nicely paced. Expectations are not challenging to meet. Nice pace to follow at your leisure. Solid grounding in the subject. Quality relevant examples.

A super course, and available at just the right time. With journalists and journalism under assault, it's time for news consumers like me to have a better understanding of what we and our communities are up against. I truly appreciate that now I have a framework (and tools) to look at what is out there, which is helping me know what I think better and gives me strategies to talk constructively with friends and family when talking about the news. The past election, and now these first weeks of the new administration, have been real brain bangers with respect to what passes for truth in the news. As I began, a super course, and available at just the right time!

This is a good foundational course on News Literacy and provides useful concepts, principles, frameworks and examples to understand how news is created and disseminated to digital citizens. As a feedback, I wished that the content could be more periodically updated to keep up with current media practices in 2020 and beyond.

Course was really interesting. Especially the lectures by anne kruger and steven reiner were loved to watch . Didn't feel bored at any time. Recommended sources were great though they were a lot in number because of which i skipped few of them. quizzes, assignments are up to the mark.

I highly recommend this course to anyone who feels inadequately equipped to navigate the ever-shifting world of news journalism in the digital age. Taught by leading practitioners in the field, this course is accessible, challenging and rewarding. Learning about the key skills we need to know when we encounter a news story - provisional truth, evidence, context, sources, storytelling, angle, fairness, independence, balance, and bias - I came away from this course feeling better equipped to take on sloppy or non-credible journalism, confirmation bias, fake news, and the like. It also helped me to recognise and note down credible news sources and understand the responsibilities and skills of both the news producer and us, the news consumers.

The course helped me to gain a lot of knowledge in my professional field of news literacy and will aid in teaching news reporting, verification, ethics, principles to be followed. It will also aid me to make my lessons more interactive. The videos and discussion forums were well designed and added a lot of value to the course. The only concern was too many reading material which may be a put-off especially when the news value of proximity is not met for the student taking this course.

This is a course which should be done by all the netizens. A very well researched course with awesome delivery by both the professors. The reference study materials provided are nothing but priceless. In fine, the challenging assignments made the entire learning more fulfilling.

From its clear explanations to its relevant examples, I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I highly recommend it for anyone who's not sure what news is, what "fake news" is, what journalism is and how to get better at explaining all of these to others.

Best step-by-step course to take me from a fairly ignorant news reader to a person that knows how to gauge the veracity of the news I see now.
