reporting and analytics (# of times video accessed, etc.)
Product concept
1. Reserves markup layer. For text, audio, video, images. Or just for time-based media? Maybe not just "reserves"? Course-related. eReserves 2.0.
2. Academic library video uploader for online access. Easy for libraries w/o strong tech support.
3. Seamlessly integrated course reserves access across media types, within flexible access control and copyright management.
4. Back office library workflow for online video. Online video collection management system.
5. Supporting the delivery, use and management of digital media content for research, teaching, and learning. Digital media delivered for you.
6. The Variations Method. A set of recommendations, best practices. (for #5)
7. Digital video library in a box (or on a cloud?). Management tools, workflow for ingest, simple access tools. Or could broaden to include other media.
8. Hosted version of #7. or #5.
9. Media management and publishing services toolkit. Selectable components/modules. Could include an API layer. Phased buildout.
10. Rich media for Sakai (or some other targeted CMS/VLE).
11. Video ingest tool. (Matterhorn does this now.)
12. Built by libraries, for libraries so that libraries can deliver (video/audio) to users, by users.
Can focus more on end-user experience & tools, or focus more on the library's needs to manage and deliver content.
