From data basic to data die hard: Check out the EJC’s new online training platform by Madolyn Smith.

From the post:

The European Journalism Centre (EJC) has just launched LEARNO.NET –  a new, cutting-edge resource for anyone interested in creating powerful data-driven or digital stories. 

Following the success of the EJC’s renowned Data Journalism Handbook, and its associated ‘Doing Journalism with Data’ MOOC, LEARNO.NET is the Centre’s latest step in its promotion of best practice journalism and digital storytelling.

LEARNO.NET currently features three data driven training courses, run by world renowned journalists and data practitioners.

Just beginning to work with data? LEARNO.NET's introductory course 'Doing Journalism with Data: First Steps, Skills and Tools' is a great place to start. Its run by Paul Bradshaw, Alberto Cairo, Steve Doig, Simon Rogers, and Nicolas Kayser-Bril, with each instructor focused on helping you build important foundational skills.

Data has always been important in journalism and even more so today.

If you have witnessed the casual ease with which the professional liars now running for the office of U.S. President toss off one lie after another, reporting on any of the possible regimes will require a range of data skills.

Check out the courses available now and watch for new courses in the near future!

PS: Casually pass this along to colleagues who may not admit to be looking for journalism data skill courses.
