Day 2, Session 2
Britt Carr, Video Anotation Tool and Formative Assessment Tool Using Flash Media Server.
The discussion is about a video annotation system using Flash media encoder. They had partnered with a company in Japan, but the company got purchased and they deprioritized the project. The University is now bringing the project in-house. They are really focused on adding in a lot of really robust features, including picture in picture video annotation, flash symbols (like animated arrows and circles) and such. It also has a standardized rubric space, which is a nice touch; future iterations are going to support customized rubrics. He wants to create a virtual audience that reacts and does audience types of things to allow them to get embedded, authentic assessment.
