The SDX Foundation has partnered with For Journalism to offer online classes on various topics, including data visualization, data science/statistics, mapping and web coding. The topics that For Journalism has initially proposed are meant to address technical skills that journalists need to have in an increasingly digital and Web-first industry.
Ultimately, this type of training is available from different sources, but what differentiates For Journalism from others is its comprehensive scope. The courses aren't meant to be one-time events such as webinars, but rather long-term classes that take participants from beginning to end. Lessons will include e-textbooks and virtual study groups with peers. In this sense, courses will be more like a semester-long college class than a one-hour lunchtime webinar.
