Covering COVID-19 Courses

The Knight Center MOOC, “Journalism in a Pandemic: Covering COVID-19 Now and in the Future,” was offered in May 2020 in English, Spanish, Portuguese and French. The course attracted nearly 9,000 students from 162 countries, helping journalists to better understand the pandemic and improve their coverage of it. The materials from this MOOC have since been repurposed into a series of self-directed courses available in six languages: Arabic, English, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. We invite you to take these free self-directed courses, which you can access here at any point in an ongoing way. Chinese and Hindi self-directed versions are also in the works and will be posted here in the coming months.

This project was made possible thanks to support from the Knight Foundation, UNESCO, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the World Health Organization (WHO). UNESCO played a critical role in the creation and translation of the Arabic and Russian self-directed courses, and both courses were supported by the European Union as well. In the coming months, self-directed versions of the pandemic MOOC will also be available in Hindi and Chinese.
