The Informedia Digital Video Library Project is developing new technologies for creating full-content search and retrieval digital video libraries. Working in collaboration with WQED Pittsburgh, the project is creating a testbed that will enable K-12 students to access, explore, and retrieve science and mathematics materials from the digital video library. The library will initially contain 1,000 hours of video from the archives of project partners: WQED, Fairfax Co. VA Schools' Electronic BBC-produced video courses. (Industrial partners include Digital Equipment Corp., Bell Atlantic, Intel Corp., and Microsoft, Inc.) This library will be installed at Winchester Thurston School, an independent K-12 school in Pittsburgh.
