This is a course for those who want to learn more about collecting, analyzing and moderating user-generated material from social media. Social media users publish a variety of materials and data. This user-generated material is used by both individuals and organizations with different purposes. But knowledge and skills are needed to research, understand and use this material in an ethical way. In the course you will learn about various relevant research traditions with a special focus on user-generated material from social media. This means both methodological and analytical knowledge and an understanding of different ethical perspectives.


In Kalmar, Linnaeus University is located in the city centre. Universitetskajen is entirely newly-built and located just next to the sea. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

The city centre is also where most students live. Everything is available within a ten-minute bicycle ride, regardless of whether you want to take a swim in the sea, study, do some shopping, or work out. Historical buildings and cobblestone streets give charm to the city. When it is sunny, the area next to Kalmar Castle’s moat is filled with studying and sunbathing students. Student life is a natural part of Kalmar. This is where your dream of the future begins!
