@wanderingsalsero: Simple. Reel Surfer and Keeeb do not allow you to have a persistant, global playlist. Also Keeeb isn't just focused on playable media.. it's a lot of different things. The "liner notes" that you are referring to are a feature that is coming soon to CratePlayer!
Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, May 10, 2013 5:04 PM

CratePlayer è una web app o un webware, come preferite, che consente la creazione di compilation audio e video dai numerosi social network e social media del web (youtube, vimeo, dailymotion, ecc.) e dai vari siti web. E' possibile farlo anche attraverso un apposito bookmarklet che consente di catturare il video desiderato in modo molto semplice.

 

E' inoltre possibile, per ogni raccolta creata, inserire una copertina, predisporre una descrizione, aggiugnere dei tag, configurarla come privata o pubblica, condividerla (Goggle+, Facebook, Twitter, ecc.), incorporarla.

 

Molto utile per la didattica in quanto consente di creare raccolte di video e/o audio da fonti diverse e su un deterimnato tema / argomento da fornire agli studenti per approfondimenti e per lo studio, senza dover fornire loro lunghe liste di  link. Utile anche come esercizio da far svolgere agli studenti fornendo loro un tema sul quale ricercare fonti audio e video da oprganizzare e integrare in una raccolta

unspy's curator insight, June 2, 2013 1:57 PM

Taking "Fair Use" to the next level... CratePlayer is a web app which allows you to create compilations of video (and audio) clips coming from all your social media accounts as well as from YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Soundcloud or from any other website (a standard bookmarklet allows to easily grab video and audio content you find on the web.)

 

While it is not possible to upload your own files, it is possible to apply a visual cover, a description and relevant tags to each collection, which can be set to "private" or "public" depending on your needs. Furthermore you can invite additional persons to contribute to curate a specific collection.

 

Final collections can be easily shared on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, via email, or can be embedded on any web site or blog.

Framed: putting context in the player's hands [A new approach to interactive storytelling]

Framed: putting context in the player's hands [A new approach to interactive storytelling] | Successful EFL Teaching | Scoop.it

Tracey Lien:  "In most video games, players are entrusted with performing actions: run, jump, shoot, swing, slash, crouch and curb-stomp. The developer sets the scene, establishes the context and the player is released into the world with an arsenal of actions. In Loveshack Entertainment's Framed, things work the other way around."

With Graphic novels being vogue and interactive media sought after- this is a great game by Loveshack Entertainment. It puts the audience in control to craft the story.

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's curator insight, May 11, 2013 9:17 AM

Reminds me of Led Zeppelin's _In Through the Out Door_ interior album jackets.  I realized a few years ago that story arc is particular to the character's point of view, and should be talked about in that way, so this really adds a dimension to the analysis that could help students imagine stories from multiple perspectives.
