Greetings from the Knight Center at the University of Texas at Austin!
We thought you might be interested in the Knight Center's newest course on data-driven journalism that is about to start.
"Data-Driven Journalism: The Basics" is a free online course, taught by some of the best pros in the United States, who work for publications like the New York Times, NPR, ProPublica and The Houston Chronicle.
Our MOOC will run from Aug. 12 to Sep. 16 and include the basic skills all journalists and people interested in journalism should know in this era of big data. The course is asynchronous, so you can take it at your convenience, and is divided into weekly modules.
