Semantic Annotation Tool

The development of the Semantic Annotation Tool (SAT), which would facilitate the creation and sharing of time-based media annotations on the Web by researchers, students, and educators.

The Semantic Annotation Tool (SAT) proposal seeks funds to develop and distribute a drop-in module that facilitates the creation and sharing of time-based media annotations on the web. The finished system will be composed of two parts: first, a jQuery plugin that wraps an existing media player to provide an intuitive authoring and presentation environment for time-based video annotations; and second, a linked data server that communicates with the plugin to collect and disseminate user-generated comments and tags using the W3C Open Annotation specification. The goal of building this system is to create an end-to-end open source video annotation workflow that can be used as either an off the shelf or customizable solution for a wide variety of applications. Potential uses include collaborative close reading of video for humanities research, simplified coding of time-based documentation in social science studies, enhancing accessibility for media clips on web sites, and many others
