About the Course

We all use the internet, but do we know how to use it well? How can we get the most out of online resources while avoiding “fake news”: inaccurate, outdated, or overly-subjective information?

This course teaches you how to navigate the deluge of information available online and discern reliable sources from unreliable ones, fact-checking anything that isn’t clear.

By the end of the course, students will be able to apply good information-gathering practices to their own work, so they can be confident that what they are communicating is always accurate and able to withstand scrutiny.

Course Requirements

Mastering Media is the second course in our Strengthening Your Core badge. The first course is Marketing Yourself and the third, Time Management. Students can take these courses in any order, and they may choose to complete a badge in its entirety or simply elect to take one or two courses from that badge that most address their professional development needs.

This course is 4 weeks long. Each week, you will have two 1-hour sessions of live instruction, and then 1-2 hours of homework. That means a total time commitment of no more than 12-16 hours! This length of time allows students to fully explore the course topic and develop strong foundational skills without having to commit to a lengthy training program. 

GoToWebinar facilitates live instruction, with screensharing capabilities and the opportunity for students to ask questions via audio or chat.

Plus, you won’t need any fancy equipment to participate. As long as you have a computer and an Internet connection, you can be a Signum Path student. Our program uses GoToWebinar conferencing software for live class sessions. Through the GTW interface, you can ask questions and submit comments to your instructor. The instructor can also allow audio for individual comments or group discussions, depending on the needs of the course. Video sharing is also available for demonstrations, presenting assignments, and other interactive elements.

This course will also use a Google Classroom that you will access through a Signum-provided email address. In that classroom space, you can view and submit assignments, check the course schedule, and discuss ideas with your instructor and fellow participants.
