Georgia launched the Mobile News Lab in 2014 to provide students a forum to experiment with mobile production tools and design concepts. Students learn and engage in hands-on practice using mobile devices and applications to report and present news. This year, 18 students will participate in the lab and focus on three tracks: standard mobile video, social media and virtual reality video.

The Grady Mobile News Lab is an extracurricular experiential learning opportunity presented by the college’s James M. Cox Jr. Institute for Journalism Innovation, Management and Leadership.
