Online educational platforms of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision

The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage on October 27 provides an occasion to raise general awareness of the need to take urgent measures and to acknowledge the importance of audiovisual documents.

The online educational platforms ED*IT BASIS, LES 2.0 and Academia of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision are paying attention to the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. ED*IT BASIS (primary education), LES 2.0 (secondary education) and Academia (higher education) provide online access to thousands of hours of video and audio which have been made available thanks to the digitisation efforts in the framework of the Images for the Future project.

These unique materials are contextualised and made available for educational purposes.

To complement the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, ED*IT BASIS pays special attention to the content folder Time of television and computer containing audiovisual resources from the start of Dutch television until now.

LES 2.0 brings the online digital lesson Into the lions den about wildlife filmmaker Hugo van Lawick into the limelight.

Academia provides the content folder Radio and Television History where teachers and students can find a vast selection of important Dutch television and radio broadcasts.

All this material is digitized, contextualised and retained to educate future generations.
