ovc.jpg September 30, 2010. CCNMTL staff will be heading to the Open Video Conference this Friday and Saturday to moderate discussions and present on topics related to open video in education. Hosted by the Open Video Alliance, the Open Video Conference is an annual multi-day summit for thought leaders in business, academia, art, and activism to explore the future of online video. Featured keynote speakers include Susan Crawford, professor of law at Cardozo and former Obama advisor; Tim Wu, professor of law at Columbia Law School and chair of Free Press; and Michael Wesch, cultural anthropologist and professor at Kansas State University.

This marks the second year that CCNMTL has partnered with the Open Video Alliance to participate in the OVC's education track and, for the 2010 conference, CCNMTL played a larger role in developing and securing speakers for this track. On Saturday, October 2, CCNMTL staff members Mark Phillipson and Schuyler Duveen will join representatives from Opencast Matterhorn and WGBH in the "Tools for New Media Teaching and Learning" session. Phillipson and Duveen will share a sneak peak at MediaThread, CCNMTL's newly launched collaborative multimedia analysis environment. MediaThread will be unveiled to the Columbia University community at the upcoming New Media in Education 2010 Conference.

CCNMTL's Brian O'Hagan and Jonah Bossewitch will serve as moderators for this panel as well as the "Educational Video Services Strategy" panel, in which a multi-institutional group from Penn State University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Southern California, and University of Virginia will discuss their respective strategies for raising awareness of open video, improving student and faculty digital literacy, and impacting learning with digital media, as well as the technologies that support these activities.
