The Academic Training (AT) video archive in CDS contains a wealth of knowledge that we could promote in youtube as part of CERN's mission around Education. To prepare:
- Check other such sites on the web, e.g. NASA, Fermilab, Argonne, ESA, EPFL, UniGe, google, etc - also some sites of famous art institutions - and write down what we can learn from the best ones. This is now done, see HERE. The CERN communications team will make a few seconds' teaser to place at the entry of the future youtube channel. It can be inspired by TEDx talks' introduction, where keywords are flying around in music to introduce the topic.
- CERN Academic Training Committee members and lecture series' sponsors to select 'best-of' past series in CDS, classify them per discipline domain and equip them with keywords that will help web searched in the future.
- Prepare the script (in CERN IT CDA-IC section) that will merge the channels (slides mostly with temporary intersection of the lecturer's face) in order for the existing CDS records to be uploadable to youtube. In the IT e-learning project we documented the tool to use for that (ffmpeg). This is not there yet, in Audiovisual infrastructure.
- Make CDS video playlists per domain so they can be fed into youtube as such. This is not there yet, in CDS functionality but planned for the next release, later in 2017.
- Propose content for these corporate slides (with help by the CERN designer).
- Use an automated tool to wrap existing CDS video records in 'corporate' slides (start/end). This will be available by the Audiovisual infrastructure in the autumn 2017.
- Publish existing CDS records from the AT lectures' category in a new, dedicated CERN AcademicTraining (final name to be decided) youtube channel, inspired from relevant examples of other organisations, as concluded in point 1 above.
- Participate in the making of a short (1 minute) clip, by the CERN studio experts, that announces the series to attract audience interest.
- Document patterns that can lead to a process automation for future publishing of other CDS educational collections.
