MDID: Cultivating Multimedia on Your Campus - Organizer: Christina Updike, James Madison University; Speakers: Andreas Knab, Lead Software Developer, and Kevin Hegg, Assistant Director, Center for Instructional Technology, James Madison University

Andreas Knab and Kevin Hegg of James Madison University's MDID development team will present the latest version of the Madison Digital Image Database. MDID 3 is an open source multimedia management system with innovative tools for discovering, aggregating, and presenting digital media in a wide variety of disciplines and learning spaces. MDID 3 also provides a platform to build specialized multimedia applications with custom interfaces for teaching, learning, and sharing. The MDID team will demonstrate federated searching, which simultaneously finds content in remote sources such as other MDID installations, Flickr, and ARTstor; multimedia management and delivery; and the new MediaViewer presentation tool. In addition to these new core features, the presenters will showcase several innovative applications that have been developed and implemented at James Madison University in collaboration with instructional technologists, librarians, visual resources specialists, and teaching faculty. This informative session is open to anyone using or interested in MDID. A question and answer period will follow the presentation. Continuing the tradition of a freely shared educational resource, MDID is distributed free of charge under an open source license and is used at many institutions across the United States and around the world.
