Welcome to Module 10: Mobile Devices & Connections

Greetings all! 

This module explores how mobile devices change the information experience. Do you have a serious relationship with your smartphone? Does it connect you to family, friends, school and the world? 🙂

Note: I revamped this one for the re-recording and changed the name. It seems like in the area of mobile devices things move very quickly.

Have fun with this module. It’s fascinating to think about.

    Okay, I just have to say that I absolutely loved that in the middle of Jan Holmquist’s videos from this week, there was a video in there of a couple giant moose roaming behind him as he’s streaming his lectures. Just another awesome, yet surprising example of the types of things you can experience while taking your information landscape into a mobile environment. Very cool!

    @michael – question about the Wild CO app – much of that functionality is available on All Trails – https://www.alltrails.com/. Any chance that the Wild CO owners might have migrated their content onto a broader platform like that?
    In my archives training, that is something that has always been encouraged – if your institution can’t support a collection, to make every effort to find a like-minded institution that can maintain those records. Obviously it’s harder with user-submitted content, but it wouldn’t be impossible.
