Videos recorded during in-class teaching and made accessible online are a versatile resource on par with a textbook and the classroom itself. Accessing the content of interest in a lecture video is not easy because of the difficulty of quickly accessing the content of interest in a long video lecture as there is no table of contents or index sections. Designing a framework for automatic topic segmentation can significantly improve accessibility. Automatic organization and indexing of the topics and topic-related content with the efficient search feature can help the students to easily access and review the topic of their choice quickly and efficiently. The Research Project focuses on “Topic-Segmentation, Indexing and Semantic Searching in Videos” to enable efficient search of lecture videos in the education domain.
