about the mediakron project
MediaKron is Boston College’s web-based application developed to meet faculty members’ need to easily organize digital instructional materials and to create dynamic interactive learning environments. Customized sites in MediaKron utilize a variety of features – including maps and timelines – to organize, present, and juxtapose images, video, audio and text in flexible and innovative ways.
MediaKron was created by Boston College with funding from the Davis Educational Foundation. Boston College is expanding MediaKron’s usage across higher education institutions in order to form a learning community to enable the tool to become self-sustainable and serve as a conduit to innovation and digital scholarship for faculty and students.
