Content Analysis and Modeling for BCCI
Margaret Hanley and Jennifer
Rigby, BBC New Media, London
BBCi is the interactive arm of the BBC, creating
content and applications for interactive TV and Internet for the British public,
connecting users to each other using digital media. BBCi has started a comprehensive
bottom-up analysis of its web sites as part of a content sharing project, aiming:
* To identify similar content areas across BBC, focusing on content development
by experts within the BBC
* To identify and develop controlled vocabularies
and standard content models for increased re-use of content
* To provide better
* To provide syndication opportunities
study focuses on the content modeling of the English Regions' "Where I Live"
(WIL) sites that provide information to regional audiences(http://www.bbc.co.uk/england).
The WIL sites were chosen because the content is being transferred to a content
management system, management wanted to increase the amount of content that is
re-used across the sites, and to allow publishing to many platforms, from web
to digital TV to handheld devices.
The aims of this process were to:
Identify common content objects and existing controlled vocabularies
or license controlled vocabularies
* Provide specifications for the development
of data models and XML schema
This case study will discuss the methods
used in the content modelling, the deliverables like the library of content objects
and controlled vocabularies, and the way the deliverables are used in the content
management system to provide more flexibility for publishing across platforms.
