Fall 2014 Release of Mediathread Supports Secure Collections

Home > News & Updates > Fall 2014 Release of Mediathread Supports Secure Collections

Mediathread is CCNMTL's innovative platform that supports multimedia analysis and annotation. With its latest release, Mediathread now supports media on secure websites (https) expanding the media collections that can be used within the tool, and allowing us to continue supporting recently secured applications such as YouTube and Flickr.

In addition to performance improvements, bookmarklet enhancements and an upgrade of the underlying Django framework, the Mediathread team introduced a new infinite scrolling feature that will make finding media within the tool much easier.

Finally, faculty can now request new classes directly from the website. For more information, and instructions on how to request a course in Mediathread see: Request a Mediathread Course

In addition to supporting faculty innovation at Columbia University, the Mediathread team continues to advance our partnership with Dartmouth's Media Ecology Project, and has expanded our user base to 4 continents.

New uses of the tool also were highlighted at CCNMTL's May 2014 symposium, Moving Images and the (Digital) Humanities, held at Teachers College and involving faculty and administrators from universities, museums, and other educational institutions.
