Advene - Annotate Digital Video, Exchange on the Net - is an application that enables users to create and share annotation on digital video documents. Additionally, Advent allows users to compile, edit, and visualize hypervideos generated from their individual annotations. The purpose of Advene is to facilitate communities of online users and provide them with the opportunity to share "their audiovisual 'readings', and to envision new editing and viewing interfaces for interactive comment and analysis of audiovisual content". From use in the classroom to conferences, Advent launches a means to critically engage and create using audiovisual media.
