  15. Linked Data Approaches to OERs This project takes a linked data approach to aggregation of OERs and other online content in order to improve the „usefulness‟ of online resources for education. „Autokitty‟ is an open-source application which uses linked data approaches to present a collection of pedagogically related resources, framed within a narrative created by either the teacher or the students. The „collections‟ or „narratives‟ created using the tool will be organised around playback of rich media, such as audio or video, and will be both flexible and scalable. Preview the Watch a software short video This tool extends the established SIMILE Exhibit web application framework and the tools developed collaboratively between the SIMILE Visit project team at MIT and the ESRC/EPSRC „Ensemble„ blog project in the UK.
  16. SPINDLE: speech > text > keywords > captions The project used speech-to-text technologies to automatically create transcripts of lectures in order to generate keywords which will help with the indexing, description and discovery of the lectures. SPINDLE created a program that automatically filters the uncorrected transcript to a set of statistically interesting keywords. The program analyses the lecturer‟s words and compares them with the British National Corpus of Spoken Words. Better keywords improve the discoverability of open content ! SPINDLE created a “captioning” toolset to help media producers deal with cataloguing media. With this toolkit, a media service can now: - batch process recordings to create transcripts automatically (using the free toolset CMU Sphinx) Preview the Visit project - generate keywords software blog - correct any transcript errors while listening to the media - and export into time-coded captioning and archive formats Watcha short video
  17. Attribute Image The Attribute Images project has extended the Xpert Attribution service by creating a new tool that allows users to upload images and have a Creative Commons attribution statement embedded. This removes the reliance on images stored in Flickr, and puts the power to attribute specific images into the hands of the user. Automatically embedding open licences simplifies content development, removes barriers to repurposing and publishing OER, and substantially increases the usability of open content. Automating licence attribution also enhances digital literacy around the use of third-party images, as the tool enables best practice in relation to attribution to be followed. The tool is available as part of the Xpert site, providing access to an immediate and established user group. It also has an API allowing developers to make use of the service in other sites.
