Openness in Streaming Media

Tuesday, February 15 | 2:30PM–4:30PM | Crystal Corridor
Session Type: Professional Development
Online tools are transforming the way we interact with streaming audio and video. What once was housed in an hour-long disc is now open at the per-second level. Sharing customized clips, discipline-specific playlists, and embedded annotations, faculty are quickly creating learning objects customized for their courses. Alexander Street Press, a scholarly publisher of online humanities collections, is working with faculty and librarians nationwide to integrate collaborative tools across its music and video collections. In Theatre in Video, for example, faculty can create a two-minute clip of Hamlet and describe the costume design used on screen. This scholarly annotation is openly shared and enriches the viewing experience for all other users. Andrea Eastman-Mullins will share real examples from faculty who use these tools in their teaching and research.
