On Thursday, June 9, 2011, the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning hosted a University Seminar. In this seminar, CCNMTL's Mark Phillipson and Maria Janelli presented Project Vietnam, a three year collaboration with Boston's public television station, WGBH. Funded by the IMLS, Project Vietnam provided Columbia University students unique access to heretofore inaccessible material from the landmark 1983 documentary Vietnam: A Television History, co-produced by WGBH. The project enabled students to discover and watch full-length interviews and a range of stock footage; annotate, edit, and create sub-collections of these videos; and incorporate clips into multimedia projects.

Mark and Maria were joined by Professors Margaret Crocco, William Gaudelli, James Lap, and Charles Armstrong, who described their own experiences incorporating Project Vietnam into their curricula. You can watch the seminar below.
