Blaine Morrow's curator insight, June 10, 2013 11:25 AM

"Videos are great for presenting visual information and emotional appeals, but not particularly effective at diving below the surface of non-visual theoretical or abstract topics or for driving critical thinking. What’s more, any video presented in class must compete for attention and memory with the five-plus hours the typical student spends outside of class watching television programs, movies, and other onscreen entertainment. (Nielsen, 2013)"

VideoANT - Video Annotation Tool

VideoANT - Video Annotation Tool | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Tutorial > http://blog.lib.umn.edu/bhosack/videoant/2009/10/videoant_tutorial_video.html

 

I came upon Baiba Svenca's Scoop today and went to the site. Spent some time figuring it out and following the tutorials. When finished, I said to myself, "I'm impressed. This is quite a nice, simple video annotation tool. It has considerable functionality and is quite easy to use."

 

Since it was a couple of years old, I decided to Google it to see if there were any more similar ones. I found there are quite a number of them, and some are quite complex.

 

Then, I discovered the You Tube Video Annotation Tool [http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&topic=14354&answer=92710]. Holy Cow! Where have I been? (Apparently, this has been around since Spring 2008.)

 

This tool is amazing!!! It makes Video Ant, that I was quite impressed with, look like a horse and buggy compasred to an SUV. No doubt, there are, or will be, tools that surpass the YouTube annotator, but for me, now, this offers a dazzling array of functionality. Without spending too much time with it, what I found immediately most impressive is the capability to hyperlink from one video to another - right while the first video is playing. This can turn video videwing into quite a particip[tory experience.

 

No doubt, many have discovered this before me, but I can't imagine why a lot of folks haven't written about this. For the Flipped Classroom, this offers incredible olpportunities. For student plrojects, again, the possibilities are quite immense.

 

If anyone has experience using this tool, I'd very much appreciate your adding comments or links below. I want to know more!! -JL

Curation Coming To Television and Film: Channelisation

Curation Coming To Television and Film: Channelisation | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

"Jon Miller of News Corp may have predicted 2012 will see the "channelisation" of the web, but he really means a renewed focus on curation..."

 

"Channelisation implies that media corporations such as News Corp will be the ones controlling the playlist of content, but 2012 will see the role of such organisations fall back to providing content for others to turn into a wealth of different “channels” where the barrier to entry essentially falls to zero."

 

Key highlights curated from the article:

 

Curation of niche interest: channelisation

"...opening up of video on demand services from all these channels will allow much smaller organisations to provide cross-channel curation.

 

If the channels who provide the content are still showing their ads before, during and after each show, then curators could start channels focusing on more specific interests and smaller niches than a broadcast channel could do – there will be channels dedicated to crime shows, medical shows, shows with appearances from certain actors, and more.

 

A user will just have to think of a single genre or idea that they want to watch in a show, and there will be a “channel” or that."

 

The curator
"More interesting than the drive to smaller and smaller niches, which could, at least in part, be algorithmically generated – will be the focus on the curator.

 

If a user trusts the taste of a journalist, presenter, blogger or other figure – they may be more interested to watch the content that user picks than the content programmed for any particular channel.

 

...These curators could add to the content by providing commentary from their own knowledge of the content – offering a place where consumers could find a new love."

 

 

Social Curation
"...Equally, groups of curators could join together to offer more regular programming than the one-off playlists of individuals, basically creating “channels” without any of the budget and monetary constraints of a real channel.

 

They would not have to pay for licensing as the content owners will bundle ads with the in-stream content, and so people will curate out of love and interest rather than having to focus on budgetary constraints."

This is great news! I feel like it's Christmas all over again - think of all the possibilities, especiaily the Social Curation where groups of curators get together to offer regular programming. This is my favorite part "so people will curate out of love and interest rather than having to focus on budgetary constraints." My head is spinning, so many ideas flooding my brain, I need to curate my thoughts:-)
