This project involved the production of a massive open online course (MOOC) in Arabic on satire writing for an Arab audience. The MOOC uses video to introduce participants to the history and definition of satire, especially as it pertains to the Arab region, and provides students with the tools to create a satire news piece, starting from the headline. This is then followed by multiple-choice tests after each lesson.

The MOOC was hosted on the NAWA Media website and can be accessed by the link below.
