Get the inside track on media and digital policy in Africa


The Namibia Media Trust (NMT) announces a new, free online course, in association with the University of Stellenbosch. The registration link will be on this page at the end of the month, and the course kicks off on 16 October on the EdX platform.

You can look forward to a dynamic and interactive learning experience, with a few hours a week online, lasting for 8 weeks.

In it, you'll get cutting edge insight into policy on Artificial Intelligence, online safety, media viability and other topics.

The course is an entirely new, updated and expanded iteration of an earlier programme run at Wits University. It is produced by a group of friends of the late Jeanette Minnie, a leading advocate for progessive communications policies in Africa.

NMT is a member of this group and in 2022 published a handbook for journalism teachers, based on the Wits University course version, available here.
