keywords: Video-based learning and teaching, Video in eResearch, video annotation, online learning, educational technology, Learning technologies, new media


EVA is an innovative research-based technology that provides an online environment for video-based learning and teaching. Designed for education, it includes support for scaffolding, collaboration, reflection, feedback, annotation, quick video navigation, and asynchronous and synchronous learning.

EVA stands for Educational Video with Analysis, Annotation & Assessment.

EVA is ideal for learning content that involves procedures, performance, languages, presentations, and for capturing experts, demonstrations and time-based events for future educational use. It has already been used in a variety of disciplines including child psychology, sport coaching, teacher training, and social work.
