About This Course
Data journalism used to be a niche reporting skill, but the barriers are crumbling quickly.
Thanks to tools like data.world, journalists of any expertise and career level can quickly find stories in data; collaborate on data projects with colleagues and with other newsrooms; add depth, relevance and vital context to their reporting; build trust with readers; and extend the life of their stories.
In this webinar, you'll learn how you can use data.world to discover data relevant to your beat and community with structured search, tags and alerts. We'll share how to quickly slice national datasets by location, date, etc., then export and share subsets with your team. You'll learn to keep context within reach for you and your collaborators with annotated data dictionaries, easy documentation and activity feeds. And we'll also show how data.world makes it easy to share ideas, powerful queries and exploratory visualizations with anyone — you control who sees what, and what collaborators can do.
This training event is part of a series on digital tools, supported by Google News Lab and in partnership with the American Press Institute and The Poynter Institute, funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
