Memory Miner is a collaborative digital storytelling application which permits users to add a wealth of meta data to photographs as well as rich media including audio and video files. The program exports a slick looking website including all included metadata and attached media files, and permits one click searching of the image archive with custom queries. Websites can be uploaded to public or password-protected webservers (which you have access to already) and a we-based feature permits others you invite to contribute to the meta data associated with individual images. Future versions may permit web-based additions of audio and video annotations as well! The software is available now for Macintosh, is free for secondary teachers and students, and a Windows version is in development which will have an identical file format for cross-platform compatability. Memory Miner is a great application for digital storytellers! Learn more and download the software on
