Do you want to get started with data journalism, but don't know how? Or do you need a refresher on the basics? This module will help you.
As a journalist, you interview a lot of people for your stories. Now, just because you have data, it doesn’t mean that your approach should be any different. Interview it like you would a person!
The words “easy” and “maths” in the same sentence? Nope, we are not pulling your leg. You can do data journalism - easily - without a maths degree.
Visualisations bring the “ooooh” factor to data-driven journalism, but their purpose is greater than simply making your story “pretty”. They bring data to life, help you to analyse and explore your data and find story angles that you may not have identified. They enable you to communicate more effectively with your audience too.
