We just launched registrations (here) for our MOOC in French 'How to Become a Good Datajournalist', written by Nicolas Kayser-Bril, one of the first French datajournalists. It will start on 6 October.

MOOC 

As data has become one of the most promising fields in journalism nowadays, this MOOC will help journalists make sense of it: how to collect, organise and visualise data, how to run statistics, how to work with designers and developers, etc.

Nicolas Kayser-Bril has helped to introduce datajournalism in prestigious French newsrooms and he is the co-founder of Journalism++, as well as a winner of a Data Journalism Awards 2014. The MOOC is also produced by Rue89 and First Business Mooc.

The MOOC is completely free. A Premium option will give participants access to a pack of 4 tutorials (Google Spreadsheets, Datawrapper, CartoDB and OpenRefine) for 50 euros, if participants would like to go further.
