Knight Center


The Knight Center’s training program focuses on three elements: online distance learning courses, traditional training at our conferences and lectures in the hemisphere, and publishing free e-books in our digital library. Our programs focus on raising the ethical and professional levels of journalism, thereby contributing to freedom of press and democracy in the hemisphere.

DL_globe.jpgDistance Learning The Knight Center has offered online courses since 2003 and began to expand its distance learning program with the launch of its first MOOC in October 2012. From that date to mid-2017, the Center's MOOCs reached more than 100,000 students from 171 countries. Our short courses are completely online and taught by some of the most well-respected, experienced journalists and journalism trainers in the Americas.

The Knight Center maintains a free multilingual library of reports on journalism in the hemisphere and digital journalism training manuals. The training manuals emphasize practical tools that are necessary for journalists to do their work in the digital era. Our other publications discuss the shared challenges and opportunities faced by journalists doing their work in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Events.jpgEvents The Knight Center sponsors and/or organizes a variety of conferences, workshops and lectures in the region and at the University of Texas at Austin, principally the International Symposium on Online Journalism, the Ibero American Colloquium for Digital Journalism and the Austin Forum on Journalism in the Americas. We work with other independent journalism organizations in the Americas to host specialized training programs and to organize journalism conferences around shared goals of professionalization and press freedom.
