We are pleased to announce that the SMART Lab at Ohio University Scripps College of Communication has paired up with Google News Labs as part of the News Lab University Network. This collaboration aims to promote academic projects that use Google tools.

“The Network is designed to provide in-person training when possible, and online training materials to professors and students on topics ranging from Google tool fundamentals, trust and verification, immersive storytelling, data journalism, advanced search and Google Trends, data visualization, mapping and more.”
