African journalists can register for free online courses.

The Namibia Media, in partnership with the University of Stellenbosch, is offering two online courses. The first course “Freedom of expression in the African media and digital landscape” goes live on Oct. 16.  The second course “Governance and regulation, access to information and media viability” begins Nov. 13.

Both courses are self-paced and will be held for four weeks, with a commitment of three to five hours per week.

The courses offer expert knowledge about disinformation and other current issues in media and digital freedom in Africa; insight into strategies to address the challenges to media viability in the age of AI; and an understanding - through case studies - of how people have successfully made change.

Although the courses are free, if you want a certificate, each course is available for US$99.
