Sometimes the best conversations take a few months to gell. Like this one. Responding to January 4 post from Alec Hayes, Stephanie Rieger opines that we do not see student generated mobile content because "making mobile content right now is cost-prohibitive and available only to those with large budgets." That was in January (and Rieger's blog abrubtly stops there, sadly). This week, Hayes responded with an outburst against commercial MMS offerings ("Why should we be charged $0.50 per MMS message when collectively we can realise learning outcomes and engage our students with ease and authenticity?") and assertions that mobile content is within the reach of the average content creator. It's disjointed, and not the easiest read, but it's authentic, and that's what I like.
