The growing popularity of social media makes it increasingly difficult to keep up with the huge volumes of information they produce. We present SentenTree, a novel visualization technique that helps people gain a quick understanding of the key concepts and opinions expressed in a given social media text set. SentenTree can be used by both casual social media users and professional analysts.
JetEdit is designed to exponentially accelerate the time it takes filmmakers to go from shooting footage to a rough cut by leveraging their impressions of takes while filming, and using that semantic data to generate a rough cut instantly.
Prior research has produced mixed results regarding the usefulness of interactivity in multimedia learning. In this study, participants learned to solve part of a Rubik's Cube using either a tutorial with interactive features or a passive (video-based) tutorial. Participants with low spatial ability benefited more from interactivity than those with high ability, though no performance main effects were found between the tutorials. Targeted use of interactivity could be effective in engaging students and help them learn.
