Multimedia training course for journalists in Haiti

UNESCO supports the first multimedia training course for journalists in Haiti

UNESCO supported the provision of multimedia training to 26 Haitian journalists, by Groupe Médialternatif and Solidar’IT in June and July 2011 in Port-au-Prince. The goal of the training course was to build the capacity of Haitian journalists and media institutions to produce Internet multimedia content (web photo-reporting, sound portfolios and short videos) and to use new social media (Facebook, Twitter and Flickr) to disseminate information. It also included ethical issues specific to Internet journalism, particularly during electoral periods.
