eduMagnet was created for the OLPC project and allows users to search for educational videos on various online video services (YouTube, TeachersTube, Blip.Tv, etc). Video access is realized with a Python Plug In Interface, so that advanced users may enable access to new Video Services on the platform.
All Users are encouraged to create collections of Videos and to publish these collections on the dedicated website. Further planned features include the direct exchange of videos and video collections between OLPC clients, the exploration of different channels per Video Service and integrating comments.
