    World Pulse has posted PDF copies of materials used in their “Citizen Journalism and Digital Empowerment” training course. The aim of the training materials is to boost journalistic skills and confidence.

    Topics include journalistic ethics, how to conduct interviews, how to structure stories for impact and recognition, how to write an op-ed and get it published, how to use Facebook and Twitter to amplify voice, and how to make a multimedia story.

    There are four modules available online, and a four-part guide to using “new media.” You can find the materials through this link:
