Fun with YouTube Subtitles

I had a bit of unexpected fun yesterday. One of the things (on my long list of things) to explore this summer is closed captioning (subtitling/transcribing) videos and getting a manageable workflow going. As we begin the Fall semester in about 6 weeks, I want to have a plan for implementing transcriptions as a part

Transition of a Space

This is a follow-on from my last post. Some of us DTLT folks got another chance to see the progress of the ITCC (if you don’t know what that stands for, read more of my blog). As I mentioned previously, I’ve been concentrating on the DTLT Edit Suite, and the progress of that room is

Imagining a Space

Imagine the possibilities. My mind is preoccupied with what the Information and Technology Convergence Center (ITCC) will do. I have to think of the possibilities of individual rooms, as well as how those rooms fit into the overall vision. I’ve got my vision for video and audio production in the ITCC and if I could

One of the initiatives that I am currently working on here at UMW is something called the Digital Media Commons Initiative. Part of the purpose of that program is to get people up to speed with some more sophisticated digital video and audio equipment. We are going to have a full-blown studio in the new

I am happy to finally be able to announce that the University of Mary Washington has partnered with MediaCore to run a pilot installation of their media platform. MediaCore will mean many things to many people, but more generally it will give members of the UMW community the ability to control and curate their media collections.

From the window of our office in DTLT we can see the students beginning yet another chapter in their academic career.

New Year 2014

Happy New Year one and all! I don’t know what it is, but 2014 is one of those years that sounds special for some reason. I can’t put my finger on it. I was finally able to slow down a bit during the Christmas break. The way things have gone for me in recent years,

I just finished watching the documentary Room 237. This is not a review of the film, but I found it interesting enough to watch. It probably is something you should see if you’re a fan of the film it references – Stanley Kubrick’s, The Shining. The basic content of the film is interviews with several
