About the Course

The post-truth world is a divided and partisan environment in which factual information has been displaced by subjective and biased viewpoints. Facts and expertise no longer matter when isolated communities deny truth and scientific reasoning in favor of whatever information suits their needs or aligns with their beliefs. Social media and emerging technologies have the power to connect global participants in a meaningful way; yet, they have also led to disconnected communities that fail to communicate past their own self-imposed boundaries. In this course, you will gain insights to recognize your own biases and identify preconceptions in today’s dynamic social information environment. Through metaliteracy, you will practice self-reflective, metacognitive processes and reexamine fixed mindsets. Together, we will consider the importance of facts and expertise in reinventing a truthful world based on inclusive communities of trust. This course will empower you to be a reflective consumer and a creative, responsible producer of information, and to raise and share your voice in this post-truth milieu....

The course is great the final project is not I have waited 2 months for a grade, the scoring of other projects is somewhat odd as well as some of the projects I reviewed were almost a year old one other thing is some of the projects were formatted in such a way that you need to download to review, they may have been good but I do not want to download unknown material, would give a five star if not for the final project. you must score 100% on the final project to pass this course which for most is difficult at best the grading system is flawed and needs to be reworked in order for a better review
