More free online training on infographics and visualization

Mark Glaser's PBS Mediashift has just published a nice discussion about massive and free online education. Rosental Alves and Andrew Lih mention the three editions of my Introduction to Infographics and Data Visualization MOOC (Massive Open Online Course,) the first one about journalism ever offered in the world. Thanks so much for that.

Just in case you're interested, Scott Murray (of Interactive Data Visualization for the Web fame) and I are working on an entirely new MOOC, which we may co-teach at the end of this year or at the beginning of 2015, also through Rosental's Knight Center. We'll keep you posted on that.

Besides, another data and visualization MOOC in which I'm an instructor is coming a few months from now, probably in May this year. It's titled Doing Journalism with Data: First Steps, Skills and Tools. Enrollment is still open, and more than 14,000 people have already signed up. The other teachers are Simon Rogers, Paul Bradshaw, Steve Doig, and Nicolas Kayser-Bril. Impressive lineup, right?
