Cross Media

Multi-media or “rich media” environments are becoming increasingly important to disciplines across MIT.  OEIT engagement is directed towards both focused applications of digital media for hyper-narrative authoring as well as reusable backend repositories that leverage investment in one project to benefit many.

Some of the projects in this program area include:

  • Visualizing Cultures
  • VUE – Visual Understanding Environment – A concept/content mapping tool
  • XMAS – Cross Media Authoring System
  • Content Workflow – campus implementation of tools such as Apple’s PodCastProducer and the OpenCast Community
