Sharing your media knowledge
Have you got some journalism expertise to share with others?
If you are a journalist, media manager or media trainer and have some tips to share, please consider submitting a training module to this site so that journalists worldwide can benefit from your experience.
We have a growing collection of free tips and tutorials on the site which are regularly copied and translated into many languages and shared worldwide.
Transferring skills and building capacity
In many countries journalists and media managers are using the modules from Media Helping Media to train their staff and set up media training centres. And you can be part of it.
It’s all about sharing ideas, giving away tips, transferring skills and building the capacity of journalists in countries where the media is still developing.
Anyone can pitch in, and it’s not a one-way street. Training modules written by those who’ve traditionally been on the receiving end of media development are welcome too.
