Help Us Develop the Listening Station - A New Tool for Recording Stories and Conversations
Become an early investor and help us raise $60,000 in development costs to upgrade our beta tested Listening Station kit and app for use at educational institutions around the world, with a 2017 summer release.
As part of our investor pool, you will gain access to a community of shared users shaping how this tool can best assist students, faculty, and staff at colleges, universities, and other organizations in recording interviews, conversations, and oral histories.
In collaboration with the California State Library, we beta tested the Listening Station at libraries around the state, in a series of onsite workshops with library staff and patrons. We have witnessed how this unique, iPad-based recording station and app revolutionizes the process of low cost audio and video recordings.
Your investment will assist with a number of upgrades in the current tool, including:
- Improved usability and functionality
- Flexible use of captured files for editing and logging processes
- A meta-data form for administrators
- Automatic captioning with a search function for identifying keywords and metadata
