Course Description:

There is a lot of misinformation being distributed nowadays in social media and, in some cases, the mainstream media as well. Hoaxes, pranks, politically or religiously motivated memes, conspiracy theories and pseudoscience––constantly working to influence our views of the world. So how do we differentiate fact from fiction? In this two-part course, Snopes.com support founding member Diane Ehlers helps us recognize misinformation and offers proven methods to check for the truth before being led astray.
