Reporters generally are words people but they are working in an increasingly numbers world. That’s why we’re glad to spread the word about a new online course offered by the Knight Center. “Math for Journalists Made Easy: Understanding and Using Numbers and Statistics” is a free, self-paced massive open online course that aims to teach journalists how to use numbers to tell better stories and how to look at statistical data with a critical eye.
We think that’s a big plus. (And the improved numeracy could come in especially handy when they begin monetizing their work on qbeats!)
