OpenLIVES puts students to work

Hello after the long summer break!

Over the summer, we have been beavering away on the OpenLIVES project by digitising all of our raw audio files, embedding and attaching licence information to them, digitising other related files, editing videos…and putting some of our lovely recent Spanish graduates to work!

A small group of recent Spanish graduates from Southampton and Leeds have been working hard, listening to the recordings and making synopses in English for us. This invaluable work will help others to access and make better use of the recordings in research and teaching – and we are very grateful for our translators’ efforts! All synopses are being finished off at the moment and will appear alongside the recordings within the month.

As we approach the start of the academic year, each member of the project team is getting ready to start using OpenLIVES materials in their teaching (see previous posts) and I look forward to reporting the results here.
