Customizing the Google Search Appliance for Greenfield OCW

MIT’s OpenCourseWare uses MIT’s Google Search Appliance (GSA) to search its content.  MIT supports customization of GSA results through XSL transformation.  This post describes how we plan to use GSA to search lecture transcripts and return results containing the lecture videos that the search terms appear in.  Since OCW publishes static content, it doesn’t incorporate an integral search engine.  Search is provided through Continue Reading

SpokenMedia at the IIHS Curriculum Conference

Brandon Muramatsu and Andrew McKinney presented on SpokenMedia at the Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) Curriculum Conference in Bangalore, India on January 5, 2010.

Along with Peter Wilkins, we developed a demonstration of SpokenMedia technology using automatic lecture transcription to transcribe videos from IIHS. We developed a new JavaScript player that allowed us to view and search transcripts, and that supports transcripts in multiple languages. View the demo.

SpokenMedia Project: Media-Linked Transcripts and Rich Media Notebooks for Learning and Teaching at T4E 2009

Brandon Muramatsu presented on SpokenMedia three times in India in August 2009–at the 2009 Technology for Education Workshop, Microsoft Research India and IEEE Computer Society Bangalore Section.

The presentation to the IEEE-CS Bangalore Section was also the best presentation of the three–this presentation really wants to be an hour long, and we got great questions from the audience. Unfortunately I forgot to record the presentation, it would have made a great slidecast.

Embedded below is the presentation to the Technology for Education 2009 Conference, the one with a slidecast.
