The European Journalism centre announced a free online data journalism course. It is planned to start early 2014. You can find more information on their YouTube channel. The course will be held in English.
It’s about first steps, skills and tools. They say: “This five-module introductory course gives participants the essential concepts, techniques and skills to effectively work with data and produce compelling stories under tight deadlines. It is open to anyone in the world with an Internet connection who wants to tell stories with data.”
If you can’t wait for the course or if would like to prepare for it, you can now read The Data Journalism Handbook. You can read it in English, Russian, Spanish, French and Chinese.
