ClipperTube - Enhancing Time Based Media for Research

The aim is to produce an easy to use toolset to enhance and extend the use of online time-based media by researchers and create new opportunities for data use, reuse and collaboration in a wide range of research scenarios. The creation and use of video and audio recordings is becoming increasingly ubiquitous in our digital society and is playing a growing role in academic research across all disciplines. Clipper aims to make it as easy for researchers to find, cite, quote and share online time-based media, as it is to use text-based data. Users will be able to specify what parts of a video or audio recording to select and share in the form of ‘virtual clips’, by indicating a source, start and end time. In addition, they can associate descriptive textual annotations with each clip that are used as a basis for exploratory search across clip collections. Clips from the same, or different, video and audio files, can be combined to create a clip playlist – which we call ‘cliplists’ – that enable researchers to structure and view the data according to their coding themes. Rather than just embedding an online video or linking to one, Clipper opens up new possibilities for research data service development using time-based media. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
