One of the more exciting developments in the personal computer world is the soon to come ubiquity of desktop video (local and online) [1], However - with the promise of video on every desktop, severe interaction design challenges come into focus, with the need to solve problems that up till now only had to be dealt with by motivated professional media workers. This paper and live demo presents work we have done to enable learners with very little computer experience to be able to use video materials in an effective way for their studies. Using User Centered Interface Design methodologies, we have developed an interface model for creating personal summaries of movies by novice computer users.
