Welcome to the Wiki for Institutional Digital Video Management

This is an ACODE project to investigate and scope a sector-wide approach to media management, primarily but not exclusively from the teaching and learning perspective. It is also a NATA partner project that will use Media Management as a case study for how to go about the process of engaging members and subsequently developing a guide to a contemporary issue.

Aims: The overarching aim of this project is to develop recommendations and guidelines for higher education digital media management encompassing specific institutional strategic interests and sector-wide interests in tandem. The project will be judged a success if ACODE member institutions are able to leverage benefit from the work of the project.

Collaboration: The project is essentially collaborative in nature and seeks out multiple perspectives. ACODE will engage with member institutions, CAUL, CAUDIT, AARNet and CADAD organisations, and the vendor/ service provider perspective.

NATA: With support from NATA (Network of Australasian Tertiary Associations) the project is able to expand its aims and include documentation of the process for effective and efficient engagement of members and stakeholders.

Intended Outcomes:

ACODE's mission is to enhance policy and practice in open, distance, flexible and e-learning in Australasian higher education. ACODE often identifies issues of sector-wide importance and collectively suggests approaches to solutions to contemporary issues on an ad hoc basis.

It was recently identified by ACODE that there is a need to investigate and scope a sector-wide approach to media management. This partner project will use Media Management as a case study for how to go about the process of engaging members and subsequently developing a guide to a contemporary issue. The project will draw out the key elements for engaging network members, the factors required to jointly investigate and finally for collectively writing a briefing document for an issue of current concern in a timely fashion.
