Abstract

The Web has quickly become a resource for multimedia and video content. Search engines have tools to mine for visual content, but finding video content creates different challenges than searching for text. This chapter presents a detailed guide on searching for visual multimedia content and provides a showcase of innovative collections and resources. The reader will learn research strategies, gain specific skills in navigating multimedia, and receive a list of resources for finding subject-specific and interdisciplinary video content. Resources are reviewed based on content quality, partnerships, technical specifications, and overall usability.

Main Focus

Multimedia and in particular video streaming allow for flexibility and adaptability in curriculum and learning environments. Media as a term in education and pedagogy is a massive topic, as is the critical viewing, analysis, and manipulation of media forms. Analysis of a multimodal form - video, audio, text (digital or analog) - should be approached as a critical literacy. Ultimately, the educator decides why and what content will be used to convey lessons, lectures, interactions, and assignments.
