This paper introduces the Memetic toolkit for recording the normally ephemeral interactions conducted via internet video conferencing, and making these navigable and manipulable in linear and non-linear ways. We introduce two complementary interaction visualizations: argumentation-based concept maps to elucidate the conceptual structure of the discourse… (More)

This paper introduces the Memetic toolkit for recording meetings held over Internet-based video conferencing technologies , and making these navigable in linear and non-linear ways. We introduce the tools and technologies that form the toolkit and discuss the semantics of the information they capture.
The Access Grid is a group-to-group videoconferencing technology deployed at over 150 locations worldwide. We believe that there is a need for the Access Grid and other real-time collaboration technologies to provide a richness of interaction that goes beyond just audio, video and simple data sharing. This paper starts by describing in general terms… (More)
The application of open hypermedia to temporal media has previously been explored with respect to the link service, in particular link delivery and generic linking. This paper is based on the notion of continuous metadata, in which we use metadata in a temporally significant manner to capture and convey the information required to support linking. With a… (More)
The goal of the JISC-funded Memetic project is to create a suite of tools for meeting support in the context of Virtual Research Environments. The approach we are taking is to: • Work with end-user partners in a participatory design methodology, to exemplify user-centred design of e-Science tools; • Develop tools to record and replay all or selected video… (More)
Metadata for multimedia content can describe the detail of content in order to facilitate processing, for example identifying events along the time axis in temporal media, as well as carrying descriptive information for the overall resource. In both cases the metadata is essentially static and may be associated with, or embedded in, the multimedia content;… (More)
Having developed gIBIS and QOC as Argumentation-based Design Rationale (DR) approaches in the late 1980s/mid-1990s, we report on the subsequent evolution of this DR paradigm. Our primary claim is that with robust hypermedia software being used by professionals in diverse contexts, representations of this sort are demonstrably both practical and useful to… (More)
