Held on 15, 16, 22, 23 June 2019, an intensive 4-day Mobile Journalism course exposed participants to the various approaches in making better use of their mobile phones to capture and edit stories. Participants were mentored and taught by Daniel Anthony, a broadcast journalist from Malaysiakini.
The convergence of mobile technologies has resulted in unprecedented opportunities for citizens at grassroots levels to create and publish their voice on a global stage. With just a smartphone, some multimedia, camera, writing, editing and publishing skills, anyone is ready to “mojo” anywhere there is connectivity. User generated stories (USG) empower citizens with digital skills that transform their alternative voice into a more mainstream form.
