EduTubePlus: A European curriculum related video library and hybrid e-services for the pedagogical exploitation of video in class

EduTubePlus service will enable users to develop, translate and share video-based learning scenarios.

Video has proved to be an effective instructional medium for educators in order to adress curricula concepts. The proposal aims to create the conditions that will facilitate the co-existence, the use and the exchange of curriculum-related digital video, provided by Educational TVs & video producers, and of video and video-based pedagogical resources (learning activities) generated by pupils and teachers, in order to meet emerging learning needs and innovative practices at school level. The solution is based on the effective adaptation, extension and integration of existing digital educational video resources and services, robust technical solutions, pedagogical knowledge, best practices and success stories, in order to provide an innovative, hybrid, content-based e-service to the educational community. An on-line, trans-European, curriculum-related video clip library is created by segmenting the professionally produced digital videos to core-content video clips and semantically integrating them via common metadata and a multilingual ontology of multinational curricula concepts. A robust video publishing & management platform is extended to support video uploading by teachers and pupils and is integrated with an established Learning Content Management System to form the EduTubePlus Platform. Additional e-services will allow the on-line creation, upload and sharing of video-based learning activities by educators and teachers, taking advantage of the metadata and indexes of the integrated video library and supported by a sound pedagogical framework. Online video translation and localisation services, along with the ontology, support multilingual and multicultural access and use of the library"s content. The EduTubePlus educational e-service, with a high degree of security and availability, will be evaluated in real conditions in schools, extending the existing paradigms of video use in class, creating an active educational community and providing valuable feedback. This hybrid trans-European video-based e-service develops new business models for the Educational TV and video market and the market of Internet based services for schools, one of which is evaluated within the context of the project.
