The open documentary lab

Via Robin Good
Bettina Ascaino's insight:

Robin Good's insight:

 

 Docubase is a project of the MIT Open Documentary Lab that aims to create a collaborative, participatory community around a growing collection of innovative documentaries curated by experts and outsiders alike.

 

Documentaries can be searched and sorted easily in a number of ways (most recent, most viewed, alphabetical order / or as a list rather than a mosaic). The interface is slick, colorful and simple to use.

 

More than 140 documentaries are already available and a selected group of curators has put together a number of publicly available playlists designed aroound key themes connecting these clips. 

 

Playlists: http://docubase.upian.com/playlist/ 

 

The curators: http://docubase.upian.com/curator/ 

 

A fantastic resource for documentary lovers and a great example of how in an open and participatory project, curation can play a fundamental role.

 

Free to use.
