Recently, The Facebook Journalism Project (FJP) and Reuters announced the launch of an online training program, Reuters Digital Journalism Course. The program aims to support journalists in eight countries across the Asia Pacific and India to build a strong foundation in digital reporting and editing.
Journalists from Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and India will be able to access the free e-learning program. The program curriculum was developed by Reuters and includes modules on digital news gathering, verification and reporting, publishing on social media, wellness and resilience training while reporting.
This program follows Facebook’s partnership with Reuters to hold an e-learning program which helped newsrooms around the world equip themselves to identify manipulated media.
