Empowering citizens through digital media training

Arab Citizen Media provides training resources targeting grassroot media activists, online verification enthusiasts, media professionals and journalism students. Designed as an open-access e-learning platform, Arab Citizen Media is also the result of a great collaboration that started in 2012 with social technology partner Meedan, and with media and community partners in Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, the UK and the US.

You’ll be able to find here a number of resources that could help you develop your skills in areas such as digital media literacy, citizen reporting, online verification and investigative journalism, and which are often tied into specific tools such as Meedan’s Checkdesk social media verification platform.
