Hacks/Hackers, Mozilla, Medill, and others have teamed up with t to run a six-week peer-to-peer course for "hacks" and hackers. The overall theme of the course will be "Open Journalism on the Open Web," and -- being a peer-to-peer course that is all about "open" -- we need your involvement to make the course a success.
As part of Mozilla's ongoing work to keep the web open, we've been supporting a number of exciting education projects through the Mozilla Drumbeat initiative. We are partnering with Peer-to-Peer University (P2PU) to create the School of Webcraft -- the ultimate environment in which to learn the craft of open and standards-based web development. And P2PU also has a shared interest in journalism -- and recently offered a Digital Journalism course with Joi Ito of the Keio Graduate School of Media Design.
The Open Journalism on the Open Web course is an outcome from the Future of News and Civic Media 2010 event. This is a Knight Foundation supported initiative.
Hacks/Hackers, Mozilla, the Medill School of Journalism, The Media Consortium and others are teaming up to develop a solid six-week online curriculum that will benefit both "hacks" and hackers (that's journalists & programmers, in plain English). Each week the course will focus on a different topic, and each week the participants will be joined by a different subject-matter expert (or two) from the field of news innovation. The course readings, online participation, and a seminar are expected to require roughly 4-6 hours per week.
The topics that are currently in development are:
