Oral History Tools & Methods
Audio and video oral histories can be incorporated into a wide variety of digital projects relevant to research and teaching. This workshop will provide an introduction to some of the tools and platforms that make oral histories accessible in new ways. All the tools covered are freely available. We will start with some basic information about audio recording. Next we will look at tools that facilitate oral history indexing and annotation, such as the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer (OHMS) and integration into web publishing and storytelling platforms. Throughout the workshop we will also talk about the importance of metadata and documentation.
No prior experience is necessary. For a more in-depth look at public digital project options, you may enjoy How to Choose a Web Publishing Platform (WordPress, Scalar, & Omeka). We also anticipate offering a recording and editing workshop.
