EXCOVE and using videos in knowledge elicitation

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Expert commentary of videotaped expertise (EXCOVE) is an approach to knowledge elicitation (KE) where expert performance is videotaped and then these videotapes are used to assist the elicitation of knowledge from these and other experts. It was initially formulated to assist in the understanding of the complex area of psychotherapy. Psychodrama was chosen as the form of psychotherapy to trial EXCOVE. Seven hours of videotaped data and 28 h of commentary data were collected and analysed. Evaluation of EXCOVE in the light of these analyses indicated that its unique combination of using video, multiple experts, and interviewing focused on specific events can be useful in KE endeavours. However, there are high overheads involved in the recording, transcription, coding and management of video and commentary data. © 2001 Academic Press.
