Video Annotation tool for E-Learning Environments

An Annotation is a metadatum (comment, explanation) attached to a specific section of a document (text, image, video or other formats) after it has been created. Annotations have been used in several fields such as literature and education, software engineering, computational biology, imaging, law, linguistics etc. One important application of the Annotation technology is Video Annotations. E-Leaning has been gaining massive popularity considering several advantages such as flexibility, ease of use, 24/7 accessibility, cost effective and self-paced. The main intent of this project is to foster the advantages of Video Annotations in the existing E-Learning environments. This approach will aid the E-Learning environment by improved engagement among students and professors by quick information recall as videos are annotated with the answers, notifications and time-monitored feedback mechanism.
