COMMUNITY JOURNALISM: DIGITAL AND SOCIAL MEDIA

Community journalism

CARDIFF UNIVERSITY

This five week MOOC delivered on the FutureLearn platform combines elements of traditional journalism with the new opportunities brought about by digital and social media. A growing area of interest for professional journalists, academics and the wider public, the course equips learners with the skills to set up their own community news service, identify and build an audience and manage workflows.

The course, led by Professor Richard Sambrook, former Director of Global News at the BBC, showcases the research and teaching strengths of the UK’s Centre for Community Journalism at Cardiff University. It attracted 9000 learners from over 120 different countries on its first run in April 2014.
