Social Video: A Collaborative Video Annotation Environment to Support E-Learning

  title={Social Video: A Collaborative Video Annotation Environment to Support E-Learning},
  author={Stefan Wilk and Stephan Kopf and Wolfgang Effelsberg},
Our social video system allows users to enrich video by additional information like external websites, hypertext, images, other videos, or communication channels. Users are able to annotate whole videos, scenes, and objects in the video. We do not focus on a single user accessing the system but on multiple users watching the video and accessing the annotations others have created. Our web-based prototype differs from classical hypervideo systems because it allows annotation (authoring) and… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Collaborative Annotation of Videos Relying on Weak Consistency
The adaptive object-tracking algorithm used for this repositioning shows improved precision and reliability in comparison to nonadaptive algorithms, and relies on the concept of eventual consistency between different network entities.
Making Sense of Video Analytics: Lessons Learned from Clickstream Interactions, Attitudes, and Learning Outcome in a Video-Assisted Course.
There is a relationship between video navigation (repeated views) and the level of cognition/thinking required for a specific video segment, and it is found that learning performance progress was slightly improved and stabilized after the third week of the video-assisted course.
A Real-time Feedback System for Presentation Skills
A software tool was implemented using Microsoft’s Kinect and captured gestures, eye-contact, movement, speech, and the speed of slide changes to make a first step towards an automatic feedback system for presentation skills by using common motion-detection technology.


Bringing Videos to Social Media
A system that maps the concept of hypervideo - allowing to annotate objects in a video - to social media in a combination as social video that simultaneously allows a large number of users to contribute to the content of a video.
Robust tracking for interactive social video
This work proposes a novel approach for tracking video objects in interactive multimedia systems that uses three distinct tracking techniques with different strengths and weaknesses, and is integrated into the social network Facebook and used by more than 12,000 users.
Hypervideo and Cognition: Designing Video-Based Hypermedia for Individual Learning and Collaborative Knowledge Building
This chapter discusses how advanced digital video technologies, such as hypervideo, can be used to broaden the spectrum of meaningful learning activities and two approaches are introduced, providing tools for knowledge building and interaction with non-linear information structures based on dynamic video information.
The interactive shared educational environment: user interface, system architecture and field study
Using smartlink to synchronize various information components or "channels" is the attempt to reduce the user's working memory load in information enriched distance learning environments made possible by digital libraries.
Hyper-Hitchcock: Towards the Easy Authoring of Interactive Video
The editor, Hyper-Hitchcock, builds on prior work on automatic analysis to find the best quality video clips and introduces video composites as an abstraction for grouping and manipulating sets of video clips.
The Diver project: interactive digital video repurposing
Diver can aid collaborative analysis of a broad array of visual data records, including simulations, 2D and 3D animations, and static works of art, photography, and text, which support the tool's fundamentally collaborative, communication-oriented nature.
SmartPlayer: user-centric video fast-forwarding
A new video interaction model called adaptive fast-forwarding to help people quickly browse videos with predefined semantic rules designed around the metaphor of scenic car driving, which suggests that for certain types of video, the SmartPlayer yields better user experiences in browsing andFastForwarding videos than existing video players' interaction models.
ToolClips: an investigation of contextual video assistance for functionality understanding
ToolClips augment traditional tooltips to provide users with quick and contextual access to both textual and video assistance, and found that users successfully integrated ToolClip usage into the flow of their primary tasks to overcome learnability difficulties.
HyperCafe: narrative and aesthetic properties of hypervideo
This program places the user in a virtual cafe, composed primarily of digital video clips of actors involved in fictional conversations in the cafe, and offers dynamic opportunities of interaction via temporal, spatio-temporal and textual links to present alternative narratives.
