MediaMixer co-ordinator Lyndon Nixon presented at the Internet of Education 2013 conference at Ljubljana, Slovenia (organised by project partner Jozef Stefan Institute) one possible MediaMixer future of e-learning. In this future, learning videos are mashed up to generate new learning offers for online learners, and such re-mixes could be the basis for new MOOC offers that are more flexible and personalised to individual learners. Dr Nixon noted that as e-learning materials become increasingly video, there are new requirements on how to retrieve relevant video by topic and access it in term of its parts (fragments), especially relevant for learners on the go or on mobile devices.
MediaMixer technology is a solution for this, as shown by our use case with VideoLectures.NET, the VideoLecturesMashup. This use case has been described previously, and the video of the demonstrator is also online.
