DIVER: Point-of-View Authoring of Video for Learning, Education and Other Purposes

Multimedia records are an increasingly important type of data for researchers in a variety of fields, because they make it possible to capture the complexity of "mind in context." The DIVER project provides new software tools for easily taking digital video source materials and authoring annotations coupled to point-of-view pathways within the video so as to focus on specific aspects of events. These "dives" into video can then be shared with others and commented on in an Internet-based interface called WebDIVER. These functionalities are powerful in supporting "guided noticing" as an instructional method (e.g., in teacher education, graduate education), in collaborative researcher analyses of videorecords, and for other applications such as entertainment and commerce. Progress will also be reported in our work to create a new "instrument" for the learning sciences by integrating 360-degree panoramic video capture for use with DIVER software to make possible "virtual videography" and such scenarios as parallel study of multiple learning groups within a classroom. Our aspiration is to accelerate cultural appropriation of video as a fluid expressive medium for generating, sharing and critiquing different perspectives on the same richly recorded events, and to work with others to provide a Digital Video Collaboratory that enables cumulative knowledge building from video-as-data for discovery and commentary.
