Save the Date: Meeting of the German-speaking Opencast community

We are happy to announce that this year’s meeting of the German-speaking Opencast community, or Opencast DACH for short, will be happening as an in-person event. The meeting will happen on July 11-13, 2022 and will be hosted by Osnabrück University and ELAN e.V. in Osnabrück, Germany.

The first two days, July 11-12, will be organized as a regular conference, for which we will soon send out a call for participation.

Following the regular conference there will be a hackathon day on July 13 where we will likely cooperate with the German BigBlueButton community, as they are planning a meeting on the two days following our event.

We are really looking forward to seeing lots of you in person again and hope that many of you will attend. Expect more details about the event soon. Stay tuned!

Please check shortly before the conference if the schedule has changed.

If you are presenting and have a problem with the date and time your session is scheduled, please contact the conference committee.

Workshops

Workshops will happen in the two weeks after the conference. They will be scheduled as part of the first session at the summit. Please join us at the planning session. We like to ensure that as many of you as possible can make it to the workshops.

The following workshops have been submitted:

  • Accessibility
    We would like to coordinate the ongoing accessibility efforts in the opencast community and discuss options to additional evaluation and development efforts.
  • Workflow Configuration in JSON
    Currently, the workflow configuration panels are defined in HTML in the workflow definition files. These HTML definitions cannot be displayed and parsed correctly by the new implementation of the admin-UI. That’s why, we propose a JSON definition of these configuration panels to simplify the parsing and displaying in React.js. In this workshop we aim to define a concept for these configuration options.
  • Integration of Opencast in Moodle
    In this workshop, I’ll show how to configure Opencast and Moodle for a seamless integration. In the demonstration the newest features will also be presented. After the presentation, we will have time to discuss the usability of the Moodle plugins and the roadmap for future development.
  • Integration of Opencast in ILIAS
    In this workshop, I’ll show how to configure Opencast and ILIAS for a seamless integration. In the demonstration the newest features will also be presented. After the presentation, we will have time to discuss the usability of the ILIAS plugin and the roadmap for future development.
  • Opencast Annotation Tool – A common way forward
    In this workshop I would like to discuss a common way forward for all parties interested in using the Opencast Annotation Tool (OAT). Discussion points would be:
    What is the current state of the OAT?
    What needs to be done to get the OAT to a stable state usable by everyone?
    Which feature request are of interest to multiple parties?
    How can we coordinate future work on this tool?

Opencast Summit 2022: Call for Proposals

The Opencast Summit (March 8th – 10th, 2022) is dedicated to the use and management of educational videos with Opencast. While the focus of the event will be on Opencast, the community seeks participation from related domains and projects.

We are therefore inviting educational designers, service providers and others working with video in academic settings to share expertise and experience across the field and explore opportunities to collaborate in related projects.

Tracks

The conference committee is looking for proposals in the following tracks:

  • Opencast adopters
    • Experience in using Opencast for lecture capture/video management
    • Ideas for new features in Opencast
    • Solutions to further develop Opencast
    • Integration scenarios
  • Opencast developers
    • Presentations and meetings with a focus on technical details, likely to  see developers, system administrators, A/V-technicians and those interested in issues related to these domains.

Proposal types

There are different types of proposals for these tracks:

  • Lightning talk: 10 minutes, including 5 minutes Q&A
  • Presentation: 30 minutes, including 5-10 minutes Q&A
  • Birds of a feather (BoF): 1 hour. Suggest a topic you would like to discuss with others.
  • Workshop: Bring forward a topic you would like to introduce others to or discuss with others. Workshops should happen in the two weeks after the conference. Feel free to also propose a workshop topic you would like to attend.

Alternatively, feel free to suggest a workshop for a topic  you would like to know more about. Ideally, you can designate/suggest  someone to host, but feel free to make this a task for the program committee.

Deadline

Please submit an abstract of your proposed presentation and the format you would like via the provided registration form by 22 February 2022.

Opencast Summit 2022: Save The Date

The Opencast Summit 2022 will take place from March 8-10, 2022. Due to the current situation, the Summit will take place online. The event will be hosted by Osnabrück University.

Sessions will start at 12pm UTC every day and end at about 4pm UTC, depending on how many sessions will be submitted.

We invite newcomers a day early to an Introduction to Opencast workshop at 12pm UTC on March 7, 2022.

Following the Summit, there will be a number of workshops to take an in-depth look at some topics of particular interest to the community. Workshops can be submitted by anyone. If you are interested in a topic but cannot host it yourself, you can also request a workshop. At the Summit a planning session will be held during which the workshop hosts shortly present what their workshop is about, and we can decide when to schedule the workshop.

There will be another post shorty with the call for proposals.

The conference schedule is live:

Opencast Summit 2022

New Opencast summit schedule

As a result of the Opencast Summit 2020 the board started to evaluate if the current schedule and format of the Opencast Summits still fits the adopters’ needs. As part of that a survey was conducted. Based on results and on further discussions in the community schedule and format of the Opencast Summits have been adjusted.

The need schedule is:

  • Opencast Summit, an international conference at the end of March, three days in person. For the community to meet and talk, sit together, work together, discuss things. Plus, there will be workshops and hackathons. As little talks as we can.
  • DACH Meeting of the German-speaking community, end of August, 2 days in person. Same as the Opencast summit. Aber auf Deutsch.
  • Opencast Online Summit, beginning of December, three or four half-days. Talks, talks, talks. And a few other formats that work online.

We will start with the new schedule in 2022. So the next event for the Opencast community will be the Opencast Summit in March 2022. However, based on the further development of the pandemic, it has yet to be decided if the Summit can take place in person, or will take place online again.
