These skills are underpinned with a consideration of ethical and legal concerns involving fake news, online trolling and the economics of mobile journalism.

Topics include:understanding how mobile devices, social media platforms and apps are interlinked;making journalistic content more engaging and interactive;advice on how successful news publishers have developed mobile and social media strategies; adopting an approach that is entrepreneurial and user-centered;expert interviews with journalists, academics and software developers;learning key skills to launch and develop news websites, apps and social media outputs.
