MOBILE ME & YOU RETURNS TO UNL IN OCTOBER

The College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is hosting the national MobileMe&You 2018 Conference Oct. 26-27. MobileMe&You teaches new ideas and best practices for mobile media.

Faculty, staff and students will learn from experts at The Washington Post, CNN, Univision, The Big 10 Network, Verizon, Quartz and others about how to use technologies such as bots, drones, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, 360 video, blockchain verification and crypto-currency payments.

Early-bird registration is $95 for professionals, $60 for faculty and staff and $10 for students.

A free hands-on mobile media workshop will be the afternoon before the conference from 3-5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25, in the College of Journalism and Mass Communications.

Speakers will discuss creating virtual reality video on social media, using mobile media to engage the Big 10 audience, making simple bots in an hour, using mobile media for spatial and place-based journalism, reaching Hispanic audiences, using the latest mobile video and editing tools, discovering fake news and mobile video manipulation and creating new stories with drones.

“This conference continues the College of Journalism and Mass Communications’ work to bring the latest technologies to our students and the community,” said Interim Dean Amy Struthers. “We are pleased to host so many mobile media experts in one weekend.”

“We will explore how mobile media are changing every aspect of the way we gather and communicate information,” said journalism professor Gary Kebbel, UNL’s organizer for this conference. “We will teach how to make mobile messages more effective with the audience of the future: youth,” he said.

Joining the College of Journalism and Mass Communications as conference sponsors are the College of Media at the University of Illinois; the Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications; Univision News Network, the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting and the Rural Futures Institute at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

MobileMe&You is funded by its sponsors and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
