Academy Training Registration
Code for Africa's digital Academy offers free online webinars and MOOC-style courses, alongside face-to-face training in an African city near you.
Our courses are all designed to give new practical digital skills, for university students and professionals working in watchdog media, civil society and progressive government agencies.
If you are keen to learn a new skill, or brush up on an old one, register now for courses ranging from data literacy and digital journalism, to fact-checking and investigative research. We have also got a big focus on digital security and sustainability/business models. Registered participants are regularly invited to additional specialist workshops on topics such as how to use drones for civic good, or how to use low-cost sensors for citizen science (to monitor air/water quality), and how to tap into satellite imagery/data for everything from geo-journalism to monitoring conflict zones.
Launched in 2017, the initiative has been underwritten by a consortium of international partners that includes the Deutsche Welle Akademie, the Google News Initiative, Meedan and the World Bank. The courses are designed and presented by industry experts, using open data and open source toolkits.
