The “Savvy Strategist” is a seven-week online course in digital advocacy that has been delivered to dozens of civil society activists from Arab countries. Available in both Arabic and English, the course walks learners through how to plan, design, and assess advocacy campaigns with a strong online component. It was developed by Social Media Exchange (www.smex.org), a Beirut, Lebanon–based media development organization that strongly supports open culture, including Creative Commons and open-source software, as well as the production of Arabic-language Web content.
