ShowHow: Supporting Expository Video Capture and Access

Abstract

Video content creators invest enormous effort
creating work that is in turn typically viewed passively.
However, learning tasks using video requires users
not only to consume the content but also to engage,
interact with, and repurpose it. Furthermore, to
promote learning with video in domains where content
creators are not necessarily videographers, it is
important that capture tools facilitate creation of
interactive content. In this paper, we describe some
early experiments toward this goal. A literature review
coupled with formative field studies led to a system
design that can incorporate a broad set of
video-creation and interaction styles.
