NMC Second Life Web Video Jukebox
For describing virtual worlds, our experience has been that a well-produced short video conveys the experience much more effectively than a presentation or trying to do a quick demo. In addition, the creation of video in game or virtual world systems (creating what is known as "machinima") is evolving as an art form and as a means of creative expression.
We had been collecting a few examples of web videos about Second Life by the old school method of manually creating a list (although it was saved in a wiki), but this new tool is much more efficient.
Anyone can create a "new" pod for a video collection, and the vodpod browser button allows you to add a new video to a collection when viewing the video on any of 1000 different web video sites. In this way, anyone can add a video to our collection, making it a shared resource all the way around.
