With the proliferation of digital and video cameras, personal collection of multimedia materials such as amateur video-clips are abundant now-a-days. Most of these multimedia materials may be useful to others if they are shared and can be located easily. Semantic Web technologies hold promise to organize and re-use such non-textual information effectively. However, annotation of multimedia contents is a tedious task. Notwithstanding, as we observe growing number of community collaborations on the present Web, such content annotation can be done through online collaboration. In this research, we investigate the development of a collaborative video annotation system using open technologies and tools where people can upload, annotate and share their personal multimedia collections efficiently. We also examine how the contents acquired and annotated with this collaborative system can be transformed into (1) Reusable E-Learning Contents for personalized learning; as well as, (2) Dynamic Digital Library with exploratory search and retrieval facilities using state-of-the-art Semantic Web technologies.
