This means that the following key highlights from NISO Plus 2020 are now ready for you to view and share:
- Amy Brand’s opening keynote, The Other I-Word: Infrastructure and the Future of Knowledge
- danah boyd’s closing keynote, Questioning the Legitimacy of Data
- James Neal’s Miles Conrad Award lecture and the discussion that followed it between Jim, our Executive Director Todd Carpenter, and former NFAIS Executive Director Deanna Marcum
- An abbreviated version of Todd’s Engaging with NISO session (a great introduction to who we are and what we do!)
All videos meet accessibility standards, with a searchable transcript that highlights each segment of the audio as the video is playing, and/or closed captions. Easy navigation helps you get to the content you want quickly, and a handy personal clipping tool lets you edit and cite that content as needed. Over the coming weeks, we will be working on adding full metadata — based, of course, on the recommendations (in progress) of the NISO Video and Audio Metadata Guidelines Working Group.
Violaine Iglesias, CEO and Co-Founder of Cadmore, who attended NISO Plus, told us that: “We are delighted to support NISO in their efforts to make the NISO Plus sessions accessible to a wider, global audience. Transcripts and metadata will highlight industry best practices for publishing video conference proceedings, and will show how user-friendly they make the video viewing experience.”
As well as continuing to add video, such as the recording of our April 3rd Roundtable Discussion, Teaching and Learning Online: Innovation Under Pressure, we are also working on creating a repository of slides from NISO Plus sessions, which we will be sharing publicly soon — more information on that shortly!
