My Research on Mobile Video Stories FOR LEARNING
MoViE Mobile Video Experience platform is developed together with Tampere University of Technology (AMC) and University of Helsinki (Cicero Learning) as a research platform for studying how people create stories and share and learn with mobile social media (Multisilta & Suominen 2009). MoViE supports collaborative video creation. We think that people can use others’ video clips from the same event in their own mobile video stories because they are sharing the same experience. MoViE supports also public and private groups, user-generated tags, tag spaces, geotags, remixing of clips and moderation. The remixing of mobile videos is one of the reasons why MoViE differs for example from YouTube. MoViE has been used for example at Kasavuori dream school in Kauniainen, Finland. MoViE client can be downloaded from Google play, Apple App Store or Windows Marketplace.
