Abstract

This research paper exposes functional features of the existing applications that are worth including in the journalism educational programs. Such inclusion will pursue the purpose of teaching media literacy to junior university students (namely, freshmen and sophomores) along with designing the Google browser AntiSepar Application. The application has been tested in practice by students majoring in journalism studies. The paper also sets the preconditions of the application’s technical tasks that were elaborated within the framework of the research project “Tools of asymmetric response to hybrid aggression in the humanitarian field” carried out at the Department of Publishing and Editing (Publishing and Printing Institute) at the National Technical University of Ukraine “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute”, Kyiv, Ukraine. The designed questionnaire completed by university trainees has confirmed the efficacy of the developed system which can be a helpful tool for analyzing media content on a variety of topics (100 respondents filled out a survey).

Additionally, during distant group discussions and practice sessions, senior journalism students were offered a more sophisticated algorithm of information processing worked out with the help of the automated systems of wavelet data analysis. A few media-cases were analyzed to work out the main schemes of information processing through InfoStream and Attack Index services. The second part of the research contains the results of the survey, conducted among the Master’s degree students (64 students were interviewed).

Finally, the authors concluded that the application of these tools makes it possible for media specialists to monitor news streams and their interconnections as well as the sources of information dissemination with ease and efficacy.
