Multimedia content portal (ARCA)

The ARCA multimedia content portal is an RSS aggregator for the academic community. The service is the result of a project undertaken in collaboration with the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in order to federate information relating to multimedia content and broadcasts streamed by RedIRIS affiliated institutions.

This service is a portal, a metadata aggregator open to any Internet user, which integrates the multimedia content of affiliated institutions in order to distribute them to a wider audience.

The site divides content into three categories: videocasts/podcasts, live events and event announcements. In addition, videos are catalogued according to the five departments defined by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO):

  • Health Sciences
  • Experimental Sciences
  • Social and Legal Sciences
  • Technical Training
  • Humanities
