This resource page features course content from the Knight Center for Journalism in the America's massive open online course (MOOC), titled "Trust and verification in an age of misinformation." The four-week course took place from April 9 to May 6, 2018. We are now making the content free and available to students who took the course and anyone else who is interested in learning how journalists traditionally build trust with an audience, how today’s media environment changes the mechanics of trust and attention, and how to verify online content and forge trust with digital audiences.
The course, which was supported by the Knight Foundation, was taught by Craig Silverman, the Media Editor at BuzzFeed News. He created and curated the content for the course, which includes video classes and tutorials, readings, exercises, and more.
