Virginia Commonwealth University has just launched a new self-paced designed to help students and professionals develop digital content for nonprofit messaging and campaigns around the COVID-19 crisis. Digital Media Strategies for the COVID-19 Crisis is being offered by the Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture in the College of Humanities and Sciences in partnership with the Office of Continuing and Professional Education (OCPE).
The course is taught by Dr. Jeanine Guidry, who is the director of the Robertson School’s Media+Health Lab and a nationally recognized researcher and educator on digital health communications. Digital Media Strategies for the COVID-19 Crisis is open to VCU students and VCU and VCU Health employees for academic credit (eligible employees may use their tuition benefit/education assistance when registering for credit). It is also offered in a noncredit format for the general community. When taking the course as noncredit, VCU Alumni can Save 10% by using coupon code VCUALUM at the time of registration.
Half of the noncredit revenue generated from this course will be dedicated to Coronavirus-related research by the VCU Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture’s Media+Health Lab, and the other half will be used to fund student needs during the crisis.
