AFP introduces digital investigation skills training for journalists
Agence France-Presse (AFP) has developed a new training platform to share essential training in digital skills with reporters, building on the experience of its awardwinning digital investigations team.
The platform provides 10 training modules of around 45 minutes to one hour, in English and French for now. They include key skills for searching, investigating and verifying information – including photos and videos – as well as for finding archived material. The courses are interactive and dynamic with videos, examples, quizzes and tips from two of our experienced editors and trainers, as well as from the global team.
Hundreds of journalists and journalism students have already registered on the platform and feedback has been very positive, from younger as well as older journalists, and from beginners to those who are already experienced in digital investigations.
