Project Enriched Playlists survey - enter a draw for an iPad mini

Please take the survey by Friday 13 June 2014
Everyone who submits a completed survey will be entered into a draw for an iPad mini 16GB (Wi-Fi) 

Please help the BUFVC (British Universities Film and Video Council) with its short survey to find out how the audio-visual collections in Jisc MediaHub might be developed for Higher Education.

The Project Enriched Playlists project is funded by Jisc to discover ways in which the moving image, audio and stills collections within Jisc MediaHub might be developed into ‘enriched playlists’ (supported by contextual documentation), to aid research and teaching.

For example, a War Reportage enriched playlist might include relevant clips and stills from news broadcasts and agencies showing how the Iraq War was reported, which could be used in history and war studies courses. 

This project will help the Jisc to understand and document how MediaHub users want to use the academic video, image and audio collections it contains. 

The BUFVC is very interested to hear the views of students, researchers, lecturers, librarians and support staff - from all subject areas 

The outcome might be that a range of enriched playlists will be created ready-made for use across the education sector, and that tools will be created for MediaHub users to build their own playlists.
