The course is one of a series of eight that has been developed for the online platform FutureLearn by non-profit D&AD, following the investment from Creative Skillset.
The course, hosted by FutureLearn, features input from prominent creatives from agencies including TBWA London, Grey London and Sunshine.
Stephen Woodford, a board member of Creative Skillset, said: "On this course you will learn from some of the best storytellers in branding and communications anywhere. Great storytelling is at the heart of effective communications."
Last month, D&AD announced that the D&AD awards – once the preserve of the advertising and design sectors – would include PR categories for the first time.
