BBC starts citizen journalism project in Brighton
In collaboration with the University of Brighton, Nokia and Ymogen, BBC Innovation is launching a month-long citizen journalism project in Brighton. It’s a multimedia project, meaning the participants will use video, still photography and text combined. Phones – Nokia Nseries multimedia computers – and a Garmin Etrex GPS device will be used by University of Brighton student reporters.
At Journalism, Ymogen’s CEO Mark Hardwick explains:
We’re trying to understand the different ways that you might combine a variety of media with location information in order to create engaging stories using mobile devices. This is an incredibly exciting project.
