What kind of data should the tool work with?

There is an unlimited number of videos, PDFs, etc. that can be used for education, training, instruction, or professional development.

Finding and curating them into playlists, integrating with existing workflow, and sharing with others is time consuming, inefficient, and often limited by ‘vendor lock-in.’

Media Share is a productivity tool that saves time, requires no training to use, and does not limit how or where content can be used.

This is a Windows program for generating and searching a KWIC concordance of a document ("KWIC" = "Keywords in Context"). A KWIC concordance is a list of the different words occurring in the document, with each instance of each word shown in context (that is, within a phrase). Word frequency is shown. Context size is user-definable, anything from 3 to 19 words long. The software acts on text files and on MS Word docx files, skipping over "stop" words. The concordance can be displayed alphabetically or by frequency, and can be written to a file.

I would consider myself to be a visual learner. I surround myself with gifs and memes, and when it comes to academia I gravitate towards infographics, mind-maps and charts to observe key pieces of information. So it’s not surprising that I chose a graphics based tool to review. In my area of study (Digital Humanities and IT), we cross paths with a myriad of visualisations every day, in many different formats.
