7 Week Digital Activism Course [Apps Due June 3]

It is time to change the way you work and use the Internet.

This intensive course will take you from being a Facebook sceptic to a Blogging Whiz. At each session, we guide participants through the sometimes confusing and scary world of social media, digital activism, and online participation with a supportive and informal environment. Sample modules include ‘Online Health’, ‘Digital Economy’, ‘Creating a blog’, and ‘Engaging with Local and National Policy’.
