Mediate is a collaborative time-based media annotation tool developed by River Campus Libraries and Joel Burges, Director of theGraduate Program in Visual and Cultural Studies at University of Rochester .Media literacy is one of the most pressing concerns for research and teaching due to the centrality of multi-modal content—images, sounds, and text—in our culture. From film and television to video games, music videos, social media, music, and podcasts, multimodal content is ubiquitous in our everyday lives. Yet education still focuses primarily on text-based literacies.Mediate, a web-based platform that allows users to annotate multimedia content, tackles this problem by providing a means for individual or collective inquiry into time-based media. Users can upload video or audio, generate automated markers, annotate their content on the basis of customizable schema, produce real-time notes, and export their data to generate visualizations.
