本文描述了mediation,一个由罗彻斯特大学开发的视听媒体注释工具。本文认为,该平台是理解电影、电视、诗歌、流行歌曲、现场表演、音乐和广告的一个来源,如电影和媒体研究、音乐史和语言学的三个案例研究所示。在每一种情况下,学生之间的合作不仅是关键,而且还使mediation成为可能,它允许学生分组工作,生成大量有关视听媒体的数据。此外,数据生成过程产生了视觉和声音相互作用的定量和定性观察。对教授这些课程的教师来说,这些课程的一个主要成果是视听的概念:物理上和文化上相互渗透的视听体验和视听记录模式,在这种模式中,听觉和视觉对我们所有人来说都是感官和社会主体。在整篇文章中,我们描绘了视听是如何从数字注释中为学生和我们自己而出现的。
