Collected Content: Solutions and Learning Channels for K-20 and Museum Communities

Time 05/03/05 04:30PM-05:30PM

Session Abstract

How are K-20 learning organizations using Internet2 to manage and deliver their high-quality educational resource collections? The panelists will present successful models and suggest best practices.

Museum Applications of Internet2

The Exploratorium will share experiences in developing media and exhibits for distribution over high performance networks. They will demonstrate and discuss their use of DVD-quality Webcasting, a multi-user music exhibit, and a microscope imaging station. They will also discuss other ways in which the Internet2 participation will enable the Exploratorium to enhance and expand
its museum programs.

Internet2 and Informal Science: Connecting K-8 Classrooms with Real Science

The Franklin Institute Science Museum is investigating how informal science
institutions can use Internet2 to connect K-8 classroom learning with the
real science resources accessible within the Internet2 consortium. They will
share the outcomes of the Institute's work with NASA's informal science
education office to explore how informal science institutions can use
Internet2 to connect K-6 classrooms with NASA's earth and space science
education resources. They will also highlight the Institute's development of
models for using Internet2 to provide support for teachers of science in
grades six, seven, and eight.

Digital Asset Management: Solutions for Campus Collections

ResearchChannel uses the DigitalWell Digital Asset Management System (DAMS) to manage large, collaborative video collections. The same system is in use by other organizations to provide encoding services, simplify management and distribution of high quality dynamic media (audio/video), and provide a
solid architecture that scales depending on individual needs. Members of
the ResearchChannel and DigitalWell teams will describe the functionality
and features of the DAMS content administration interface as it is currently
being used by a variety of groups including UWTV, ResearchChannel, and KEXP Radio among others. They will also briefly describe the supporting
