New Knight Center MOOC on Media Project Development

The Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas [es], with the support of Google [es], will be offering a free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in Spanish for journalists and student interested in learning about creating new online projects and generating audiences and revenue.

Furthermore, as the announcement about the course explains,

Google's support will allow the course to be complimented with a special scholarship to recognize the best projects developed or perfected during the MOOC. The Google-Knight Center scholarship will be offered to at least six participants from Latin America and will consist in a trip to Austin, Texas to attend two digital journalism conferences that the Knight Center will host in April 2014.

The course runs from November 18 to December 15, 2013.

    An interesting way for Google to partner with existing centers to expand their outreach globally. The project spreads media approaches and values from the US core to the latin American periphery. The scholarship winners and other participants remain in Latin America; they do not come to the U.S. to reside – and then have incentives to stay.
