    Drumroll, please! MobileActive.org is pleased to introduce the Mobile Media Toolkit, the newest project that’s all about Making Media Mobile.


    The Mobile Media Toolkit helps you make sense of the growing role of mobile tech in media. The Toolkit provides how-to guides, wireless tools, and case studies on how mobile phones can (and are) being used for reporting, news broadcasting, and citizen media. We cover it all, from basic feature phones to the latest smartphone applications.


    It’s an exciting week for us here at MobileActive.org as we launch the Mobile Media Toolkit. We have been interviewing people, researching projects, and testing tools to bring you this free resource. It’s designed to help you evaluate and effectively deploy the right tools for reporting and sharing content on and to mobile devices.

    The Mobile Media Toolkit is funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. We won an award in 2009 from the Knight News Challenge in the area of Journalism and Media Innovation. We have been working hard ever since to develop, test and share with you this free resource that’s all about Making Media Mobile.

    Please visit the Toolkit here. Share it with others. Add to it! It’s available in English, Spanish and Arabic.


    So, please join us and say welcome, bienvenidos, and مرحبا to the Mobile Media Toolkit!
