online training

A new online course from First Draft  introduces cutting-edge tools for verifying imagery and claims made online, especially by social media accounts. 

This free course is built around a number of Internet plugins and tools that anyone can use to trace a video or photo’s provenance, test for manipulation, trace someone’s online footprint, or verify the date in an image file’s metadata. Case studies include: dealing with viral videos, assessing authenticity and provenance, tracing people online, verifying photos or videos, and detecting location manipulation.

You can sign up for the course by going to firstdraftnews.org/learn  and clicking the “Get Free Access” button.
