Dimitrios Latsis (Internet Archive)
This demonstration will highlight the resources and tools offered by the Internet Archive for film scholars and filmmakers who wish to incorporate digital pedagogy in their classroom.
The Internet Archive is the world’s largest electronic repository of knowledge incorporating books, journals, video, audio, software and images. It has consistently advocated for universal open access to information and is focused on creating and sustaining the digital infrastructure required for the preservation of textual and audiovisual heritage.
In the first part of this presentation, tools developed for film/video annotation, audio transcription and search capabilities will be foregrounded in addition to our usage of linked data to promote interoperability with other online databases used by film scholars and students.
The second half will be dedicated to case studies from our educational partners (Dartmouth College, University of South Carolina, Catholic University of America and others) that focus on best practices in the use of IA in the classroom, including student projects and faculty challenges and opportunities. Particular emphasis will be placed on assignment design, customization of the website for student collaboration and participatory archiving.
