Central European University’s (CEU) “Sound Relations” Project is seeking talented and highly motivated candidates for the position of Web Developer for CEU’s Podcast Library. Hosted on CEU’s servers this will be an open and user friendly library, existing within the CEU domain, as a searchable database of sound files with a robust metadata schema. All podcasts will be identifiable by date, creator, featured topic or person, affiliated program, location, and other relevant descriptors. We envisage the users using the library as a site for audio publications, raw sound material, and recorded lectures produced by CEU faculty, staff and students.
Currently an intermediate page is being set up by the CEU Web team, where project description and content will be stored and made public. The chosen candidate will build the new webpages needed for a ‘podcast library’ either (1) on the back of the Drupal maintained interim site or (2) using Drupal on an installation CEU will host.
Essential components of the library:
- Integrated audio player
- Tagged filters (e.g. creator, series, event, place, people, period, theoretical approach)
- The possibility to subscribe to various tags (by RSS, email & popular podcast players e.g. iTunes, Stitcher)
- Faceted search
- Regular search (note we are open to creative ideas here)
- Upload page for podcast creators
- Management page of uploaded content for editors
- The possibility to time stamp content within a podcast
- Auto transcription of audio material
