What’s in the News? Using Media Cloud to Analyze Digital Media Patterns

What’s in the News? Using Media Cloud to Analyze Digital Media Patterns Online

Media Cloud is a free web-based tool that aggregates and analyzes news content from more than 60,000 US and international digital sources. Developed by the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, Media Cloud can be used to study media ecosystems, as well as track topics and specific terms over time.

In this workshop, we will:

  • navigate Media Cloud’s interface to select specific sources and collections.
  • use the suite of online analysis tools to identify trends and patterns.
  • create datasets to be exported for analysis.

Length: 45 minutes

You will receive the Zoom link and passcode when you RSVP.
