The Spring 2013 version of Mediathread, CCNMTL’s open-source platform for exploration, analysis, and organization of web-based multimedia content, was recently released and is now in use at Columbia University. The new version features a redesigned home page and cleaner interface, as well as a site tour for new users.
In addition, a new Course Migration feature was added that allows instructors to port all or selected assignments, compositions, items, and annotations from a previous semester’s Mediathread site into a new one.
Since launching in Fall 2010, Mediathread has been used in over 200 classes at Columbia University, helping students to analyze multimedia materials closely across a wide array of schools and departments. The platform is now also running at several other institutions, including MIT, Dartmouth, Wesleyan, Georgia Tech, and the American University in Cairo.
The code for Mediathread is freely available at https://github.com/ccnmtl/mediathread. More information, including a demo video, is available at mediathread.ccnmtl.columbia.edu. Columbia University instructors can get started with Mediathread by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
