  • Presenter: Designing a Campus System for Videos

    WCET (WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies) Denver CO, Nov 14-15

    Workshop title: Designing a Campus System for Videos

    Moderator: Andrew Black , University of Utah (UT)
    Presenter: Alex Martinez , University of Denver (CO)

    The University of Denver VideoManager is a one-stop shop for public and private university video management. This centralized video system provides services for public and confidential videos. The system is tightly integrated with our existing IT infrastructure for storage, security, and video delivery technologies. The results and benefits have been very positive so far. During our winter quarter 2012 pilot test, over 700 private videos were uploaded by students. Our public video collection is at 800+ and growing each day. Our public videos are indexed with a detailed metadata taxonomy to improve search and organization. As video becomes more popular as a marketing, research and educational tool, it becomes imperative to have a strategic plan and IT infrastructure and support in place to deal with video storage, privacy, and delivery.
