Mobile Media Toolkit

Mobile Active's Mobile Media Toolkit
Mobile Active recently released The Mobile Media Toolkit detailing how to produce media on and for mobile phones. It includes how-to guides, mobile tools and case studies on how mobile phones can (and are) being used for reporting, news broadcasting and in citizen media.  The site has guides for an array of devices, from basic feature phones to the latest smartphone applications.

More about the toolkit from the creators:

There are many media projects that use mobiles effectively. There are also many tools and resources that can serve the potential needs of journalists, citizen reporters, and media organizations. The Mobile Media Toolkit is a collection of these tools and resources, as well as examples of how mobile phones can be and are being used in the media industry.

The simple fact is that using mobile phones in media production isn’t always as easy as it seems. Finding the right tool and using it correctly to reach the broadest possible audience requires knowledge of the mobile landscape. The need for guidance in the industry is apparent.

The Mobile Media Toolkit provides guidance on tools, resources, and case studies of how mobiles can be used for reporting, news broadcasting, and citizen media participation on a variety of platforms and in a variety of circumstances.

The project is funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and run by Melissa Ulbricht, Project Manager of the Mobile Media Toolkit.
