This final 2015 edition will assess the year of 2015 ahead of the new year and will focus on how digital journalism can open up conversations about ethics, collaborative research and how the industry can take advantage of technology in innovative reporting. How should journalists and newsrooms foster emerging practices in a rapidly shifting news environment? Which state-of-the-art concepts are now at the forefront of digital journalism?

Check desk is an open source platform for enabling collaborative fact-checking of eyewitness media and newsworthy social media. It is designed to generate a shareable and embeddable object that can be place alongside a story or feature. The heart of Checkdesk is the simple chronologically ordered log of the reporting teams entries.

This session, facilitated by Meedan’s CEO, Ed Bice, will be a hand’s on workshop leading journalists through typical workflows with Checkdesk from establishing the story/project container, to adding reports, inviting collaborators, and setting a report status. This is a non-technical workshop but participants who want to be hands on should bring their laptops and, if possible, share their email addresses before the session to ed@meedan.com
