Background MIT TechTV first launched in April 2007 as an initiative of the School of Engineering and the Libraries. Originally built off of Blip.tv then migrated to a hybrid model using Viddler.com. July 2009 MIT TechTV was adopted by the MIT Libraries Now customized and owned by MIT, MIT TechTV uses Kaltura for transcoding and delivery to MIT TechTV’s world-wide audience.

Statistics Cont. Total Videos as of October 5th, 2011 - 10,610
Features In-line commenting / video chaptering: Allows users to comment on a specific point in time on the video. Also creates an associated link below in the page comment section with a link that will jump to that spot in the video where the comment was made. Mobile device support: Videos can be watched on iPads, iPods, iPhones, Android and other mobile devices through integrated HTML5 video support throughout MIT TechTV. Privacy settings / Integration with MIT’s Touchstone authentication system: Allows the owner of the video to set the level of security on a video so that they can keep it private, share it with an individual or two, with a course roster, with the world or whatever they choose. Comment moderation: Allows owners to easily view and moderate (keep / delete) comments made on their videos.
Features Cont. Closed Captioning: If the owner of a video uploads a.srt file (standard closed captioning formatted file) the MIT TechTV player will automatically transform to include a new section between the video and the control bar to display closed captions for accessibility. This functionality is also available in the embed function selections so that users can put their video with closed captions into their own website. Sub-collections for organization: Account managers can file their videos in multiple nesting sub-collections for organization and association of like videos. Each collection and sub-collection has its own set of information, display and unique link. Analytics: Users can see how many times a video has been viewed. Owners can see a more advanced page where reports of all of their videos can be made, based on a date range, how many times a video has been played as well as how many viewers watched 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% of a video.
Features Cont. Again Administrator Area: This section allows us to moderate videos, attachments, comments and more including one-click video highlighting and the such. Additional file attachment: Owners can attach additional files (such as powerpoint presentations, transcripts, syllabi, articles, etc.) to a video’s page so that students and other viewers have all of the resources pertaining to that video along with the video. Sharing options: Owners can choose whether they want viewers to be able to “Share This” (social media sharing widget), “Embed” (place a copy of the video in an external website), or “Download” (save a copy of the video to their computer or mobile device). Video creation resources and support: Through MIT TechTV’s blog (linked off of the homepage) users and visitors can find posts describing; video production and post-production processes, links to other useful sites, and links to lecture and other help videos on MIT TechTV on these topics.
