On May 19-21, the Freedom of Information Center held an online course "Fact-checking for Students" for students of Yerevan universities within the framework of the "Informed and Strong Youth" program. The second stage of the "Fact-checking for students" online course was held on May 25-27. This time the students of the regional universities had the opportunity to participate in the course.

The three-day training aimed to impart basic knowledge about fact-checking to young people who are active consumers and disseminators of information flows, to present the main tools and platforms for fact-finding, and to promote their application in professional and everyday life.

The training was conducted by a fact-checking specialist, media researcher Harutyun Tsatryan and Editor-in-Chief of the Fact Investigation Platform ( Ani Grigoryan. The trainers not only provided the participants with theoretical knowledge of fact-checking and introduced the basic tools, but also tested their effectiveness in verifying the various information of interest to the participants.
