Videoblogs as "Collective Documentary"
MetadataShow full item record
Blogging has been a textual activity, but text is only one aspects of the diverse skills which are needed in order to understand and manage different aspects of modern communication. Broadband connections are likely to stimulate a rapid increase in audio-visual services on the web, presumably changing the future conditions for blogging. Videoblogs can facilitate practices which promote media literacy and collaborative learning through the making of collective documentaries. Videoblogs with wiki-like functions promise to turn users into producing collectives rather than individual consumers of audiovisual content. This paper outline parts of the theoretical and technical framework which is needed in order to design an online environment stimulating collective production of video.
