Clipper Goes to Town: Feedback and Progress Review

Well that is the end of phase 1. Hopefully we shall get through to phase 2 after the workshop in London next week.

Its useful to review our progress and feedback to date

  • Formed the team and with our OU partner got the benefits of fresh eyes
  • Built a proof of concept / early prototype
  • Created a brochure and demo video
  • Community consultation and feedback
    • Explaining ourselves to potential users helped a lot!
  • Clarified our thinking and plans
  • Clear IPR management (i.e. we have consortium agreement)

Feedback has been very positive and encouraging. The best comment about Clipper was ‘ It’s genius, just what we need!’. Feedback and conversations have included. National Library of Scotland; BBC Archive; AHRC Earth in Vision project (BBC and OU); AHRC Pararchive project (Leeds Uni); Disruptive Media Lab, Coventry University; British Library Labs; CILIPS / UK (Multimedia Group); JISC Media Hub; Royal Conservatoire Scotland; University of Stirling; Manchester School of Art; University of the Arts London; Institute of Education UCL…and many more

  • BBC Archive & BL Labs – Annotation tools
  • Leeds Uni; OU ; BBC R&D – Archive storytelling
  • Stirling Uni; RCS; UAL – Practice-based research
