About This Webinar

With “fake news” such a hot topic, how can you quickly and effectively verify materials that may be, well, fake?

Most fake photos and videos can be checked quite quickly, allowing journalists and researchers to stop the spread of so-called “fake news” before it gets onto your Facebook feed. This course will help you develop an eye for fake photos and video, allowing you to establish the originality and veracity of the content. These skills are especially useful in a breaking news situation, in which verifying a photo or video will not just tell you if it’s real, but also additional information that can provide additional information for further reporting.

Handouts:
- Presentation slides and notes
- Case studies and exercises to try outside of training

Who should take this training:
- Journalists and editors concerned with verifying content and fact-checking
- Researchers and activists who work with user-generated digital content, such as videos on YouTube, photographs from Instagram, and so on.
- Journalists and journalism students looking for an edge in discovering potentially hidden information in photographs and videos to further an investigation.
