In January, February and March of 2022 CIRCOM runs online workshops, each featuring experts in different aspects of Mobile Journalism,  for anyone involved in practicing MoJo or for those who want to find out more.

35 participants from 17 countries took part in the third session, a panel discussion and Q&A, hosted by BBC journalist Amanda Parr.
The panellists – Glen Mulcahy, one of the “Godfathers of MoJo”, BBC MoJo expert Mike Buttery and the NRK reporter Ola Helness - provided encompassing views from history of mobile journalism to MoJo as platform and ecosystem and to the innovation and the future of it in media content creation.
