VideoStore

(3/2005 – 3/2007) The main goal of the VideoStore project is to develop a Web based learning system, which enables to store, annotate and share video content. The wide distribution of media documents through the Internet, using broadband, allows for new approaches in learning systems. The VideoStore project explores new possibilities by providing different interfaces for learning. The interfaces accommodate for different learning styles, allowing for more experiental or more reflexive methods. The e-learning systems have to be prepared for a wide range of users, therefore, the usability of this kind of systems is an important factor for its success. The VideoStore system will be used to broadcast faculty courses from several departments of the School of Sciences and Technology (FCT), NOVA  University (UNL). It is part of a larger project to promote broadband learning technologies.
