The OneMinutesJr project

The OneMinutesJr project gives young people between 12 and 20 years of age from many corners of the globe the
opportunity to express themselves, speak out and learn audiovisual skills to communicate across borders, languages
and distances through 60 second videos.

The OneMinutesJr project now contains more than 2000 video clips and provides a fascinating insight into youth culture and interests around the globe. Supported by the European Cultural Foundation, the One Minutes Jr. Foundation and UNICEF amongst others, the one minute videos on the project web site vary a great deal, some have been sent in by individuals, others are results from workshops where young people are taught video production, editing and publishing skills.

VideoLectures

The project Videolectures.Net was created at Jozef Stefan Institute, Slovenia, Europe in early 2002 in synergy with the global trends and more formal efforts by the European Union in creating a Knowledge Economy and Information Society.

Nowadays VideoLectures.NET is a wide ranged free and open access educational video lectures repository. The lectures are given by distinguished scholars and scientists at the most important and prominent events like conferences, summer schools, workshops and science promotional events from many fields of Science. The portal is aimed at promoting science, exchanging ideas and fostering knowledge sharing by providing high quality didactic contents not only to the scientific community but also to the general public. All lectures, accompanying documents, information and links are systematically selected and classified through the editorial process taking into account also users' comments.

The training materials were initially limited to those being developed within the FP5, FP6, and FP7 European Framework Programs, where the web based portal Videolectures.Net is being used as an educational platform for several EU funded research projects such as PASCAL NoE, ECOLEAD NoE, SEKT IP and different organizations, among others Xerox Parc, British Telecom, Max Planck, Fraunhofer Institute, Australian National University and Carnegie Mellon. The range of countries involved and languages used varies from Europe, USA, Taiwan, Australia, Ukraine, Russia and Brazil.
