Basic Information: The aim of the specially developed course, written by science journalists Helen Branswell and Martin Enserink, is to help journalists who are covering the epidemic to better report on this infectious disease. It covers basic knowledge about the virus and the disease, and how to fight it. Chapters were included on where to find trustworthy information, on tips and traps in reporting on Ebola and how to stay safe when being in the field.
Availability: The launching of the course, via its own mini-website, was accompanied by three free webinars. The webinars can be accessed through the website for later viewing.
