Sound and Vision on the future of video on Wikipedia

Sound and Vision on the future of video on Wikipedia | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

Over the course of the summer the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision uploaded another 2.000 videos to Wikimedia Commons, the media repository of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia.

theo kuechel's insight:

As the article explains, whilst Wikipedia, and Wikimedia Commons are visually rich in images, as far as video is concerned it is now a only .022%  Wikipedia content is video content. This is an enormous challenge and cause for concern, especially as video is now becoming as fundamental to learning, if not formal education, as text.


Perhaps we need to make a more concerted effort to upload video to Wikimedia. With the quality and ubiquity of mobile video recording, easy to use editing tools this should not be difficult. Perhaps Wikimedia could make it easier to upload assets, the requirement to use Ogg or WebM may put people off as they are not familiar with the formats,  and/or export to Wikimedia, are not options in most video capture export tools.


Perhaps the embedding of Openly licensed video from platform such as Vimeo could be considered to get the ball rolling. Alternatively as videos are uploaded the Wikimedia servers cousl convert to  the required format. Is this possible

"Vidque is a free video curation platform designed to help discover, filter and archive online video content. Controlled and curated by its users, Vidque aims to simplify the discovery of quality video content through the joint effort of the online community"

 

The site aggregates video from YouTube, Vimeo, TED and Blip.TV in a social media environment.  Each video you curate is presented in a clean and pleasing simple design together with the tags. This site is easy to use and I can see schools finding it a good way to collect and shared videos for learning.

YouTube Blog: Edit your videos with YouTube

YouTube Blog: Edit your videos with YouTube | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

Google annonce that as from today,  a whole new set of editing tools and effects are being rolled out to YouTube users.

 

This might well be game changer for educational users. It should enable some interesting blending of  pedagogy with production. Lets hope this is another chink in the armour of the 'blockers'.

Optimal Video Length for Student Engagement | edX

Optimal Video Length for Student Engagement | edX | Video for Learning | Scoop.it
theo kuechel's insight:

I think this supports a conclusion that many of us, using video clips in learning contexts may have been aware of, or suspected. I first recognised this when I was working on the Teaching and Learning with Digital Video Assets project (2004) with the University of Hull, and later on the EU Edutube Plus project (20011). I think where more analysis is needed is whether subjec content or the aesthetic/ filmic style affects the optimum length. The avaialability of tools

to create more interactive video content may also add a new variable to the mix. If you are using video clips in school I would welcome your comments below.

Khan Academy Receives $5 Million to Accelerate the Reinvention of Education

Khan Academy Receives $5 Million to Accelerate the Reinvention of Education | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

Whilst there may be some justifiable concerns about the place of Khan Academy in the learning ecosysem, it has a vital role to play. It is accessed by hundreds of thousands, if not milllions.. Additional funding means it can expand its reach to include arts and humanities in addition to its core STEM resources. Smarthistory is a good example of how this can work: http://smarthistory.khanacademy.org/ 



"Much as Wikipedia draws its content from a large number of volunteer professionals, the curated content system for Khan Academy will look to provide a similar outlet for dedicated professionals to develop quality instructional content."
