Join our jury of adults and kids. Our online media literacy course teaches you how to evaluate and critique a film, TV show, or videogame. The course guides you in facilitating a children's jury as well. Once you register, you are assigned a personal trainer who guides you through the course. It takes about four hours to complete. You don't have to go anywhere to take it because the course is conducted entirely online, and in your own home or work environment. This enables you to participate at a time and place convenient to you. We recommend that you complete it within one week.
