Indexed Captioned Searchable Videos

The ICS Videos project aims to address the biggest weakness of the video format, which is the inability to quickly access the content of interest in a long video lecture. Access to information in videos is enhanced by adding Indexing, Captioning, and Search capability:

  • Index points: The video lecture is presented as a list of logical index points, each in the form of a snapshot representing a video segment
  • Text captions: The entire audio stream, including the lecture and student interaction, are presented as text in a separate panel
  • Keyword search: Video segments that contain search keywords are highlighted along with their occurrence frequency
