Earlier this week (Monday) at the OpenCast presentation Scott Stocker
unofficially announced the fact that Stanford had inked a deal with Utube
for a Stanford branded channel.  Further details presumably forthcoming...

As many of you know, I am becoming increasingly concerned about the use of
video in pedagogical instances, as most guidance and literature suggests we
have a responsibility to ensure that text transcripts/captioning be made
available for students who require such.  Sadly, the train seems to be
pulling away from the station minus this important consideration.

While I continue to speak with individual content authors, as well as
various developers of all stripes, there is a concerted need for a system
that integrates this process into normal work-flows, and this may very well
be something that the OS Lab can/should consider looking at.  Whilst I have
a good understanding of requirements, my dev skills may not be up to the
task, so if there are dev folk out there in search of a project...
