The Trolling Academy
The Crocels Trolling Academy is an independent not-for-profit initiative of the Crocels Community Media Group. We help young and disabled people cope with the effects of Internet trolling and cyberbullying from others, and also help those who want to engage in posting provocative messages on the Internet to do so responsibly so not to harm others. This website uses peer-reviewed research and other scientific materials a basis to provide advice and support to experts and others.
We are the premier source of free information and education on Internet trolling on the Worldwide Web. Through the courses we provide on a not-for-profit basis, we are raising people’s skills in trolling for good, as well as helping them deal with trolling done for bad, such as cyberbullying. This is done through providing advice and coping strategies they provide.
The surplus from these courses are used for charitable purposes to support community projects in the West Wales and the Valleys region of Wales. The Trolling Academy has a strong history in this region – we were founded in 2011 by Glamorgan Blended Learning Ltd at the Institute of Life Sciences within Swansea University.
The Trolling Academy is supporting the BBC Give an Hour campaign, which encourages everyone to give just one hour to help someone get online. All our one-to-one training courses have had the fee dropped by one hour’s worth of tutoring.
