An overview and discussion of the multimedia developed in support of MIT’s sesquicentennial. Content includes the Infinite History Project, From the Vault, Elemental MIT, and five documentary shorts that explore different facets of the MIT experience:
- The Founding of MIT: Persistence in Vision
- Outside the Box: Crossing Disciplines at MIT
- MIT in Service
- Common Threads: The Evolving Student Experience at MIT
- The Ecosystem: Nurturing Entrepreneurship at MIT
Following the 30-minute screening of excerpts from the documentaries, we’ll look at this collection of new multimedia resources with our MIT colleagues who imagined and produced them — and others who are now using them in their own education and outreach activities. Conversation will include emerging trends in online video publishing and advances in video transcript-based search technology.
Moderated by Professor David Mindell, Faculty Chair, MIT150 Steering Committee, and Lawrence Gallagher, Director, AMPS MIT Video Productions.
