From their site: “Mediathread is CCNMTL’s innovative, open-source platform for exploration, analysis, and organization of web-based multimedia content. Mediathread connects to a variety of image and video collections (such as YouTube, Flickr, library databases, and course libraries), enabling users to lift items out of these collections and into an analysis environment. In Mediathread, items can then be clipped, annotated, organized, and embedded into essays and other written analysis.”
Mediathread is a dynamic platform that offers professors and researches alike a place to create and display multimedia compositions that include access-restricted material from archives alongside clips from YouTube and pictures from Flickr.
Dartmouth has recently established its own Mediathread server and is working with Columbia to prepare the platform for use both by students and by professional researchers among our Institutional Partners.
