Part 3. Observing the DIVER tool DIVER is a tool for authoring and sharing DIVES. A DIVE is an annotated  perspective on any video record. Content can be captured by equipment rang­  ing from basic consumer video cameras to specially built, high­resolution  360­degree panoramic cameras with a multi­microphone array.  We call the process of making DIVEs  Free­D authoring:Capture once, author forever.  DIVER allows for infinite points­of­view and commentary from a single  video recording. The key concept behind DIVER is GUIDED NOTICING.  DeskTop DIVER allows users to import source movies and create new an­  notated "paths" through the video source. The new annotated movie is the  user's own personal DIVE.  WebDIVER allows DIVERs to upload a DIVE and share it with others who,  in turn, can comment on the DIVE.

The DIVER project is being developed by a team led by Dr. Roy Pea, co-director of the Stanford Center for Innovations in Learning (SCIL) and Professor of Education and Learning Sciences.

DIVER has received support from the National Science Foundation in the form of a Major Research Instrumentation Grant as well as Stanford's Office of Technology Licensing.
