MIT150 Through the Video Lens–Tuesday 5/10, 4pm

Posted May 10th, 2011 by mit-admin
Date: Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Time: 4:00pm – 6:00pm

An overview and discussion of the multimedia developed in support of MIT’s sesquicentennial. Content includes the Infinite History Project, From the Vault, Elemental MIT, and five documentary shorts that explore different facets of the MIT experience:

  • The Founding of MIT: Persistence in Vision
  • Outside the Box: Crossing Disciplines at MIT
  • MIT in Service
  • Common Threads: The Evolving Student Experience at MIT
  • The Ecosystem: Nurturing Entrepreneurship at MIT

Following the 30-minute screening of excerpts from the documentaries, we’ll look at this collection of new multimedia resources with our MIT colleagues who imagined and produced them — and others who are now using them in their own education and outreach activities. Conversation will include emerging trends in online video publishing and advances in video transcript-based search technology.

All are welcome: no tickets required.

Reception to follow; room 10-105.
