Just about everybody has an audio recorder in their pocket these days. If you are involved in projects related to citizen journalism, oral history, advocacy, or key informant evaluation interviews, you might want to check out this post by Melissa Ulbricht, on MobileActive’s, Mobile Media Toolkit site. It contains links to a number of case studies and training guides that will help you use audio in a compelling and effective way.
The Mobile Media Toolkit is a new resource from MobileActive.org. The toolkit provides 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. This is a great site for anyone who wants to document evidence or stories using mobile phones.
