About eMirror


eMirror is a web application designed to assist researchers in obtaining quantitative time use and sequence data from video episodes. Researchers can design custom observation templates, thereby designating the behavior to be observed, quantified and timed. Research on the use of eMirror also indicates that preservice teachers, specifically music education students, can significantly modify their own instructional behaviors through the use of targeted self-observation.

eMirror has been in use on MacOS since 2005. Version 2.0 for the web is in beta stage and testing will continue during the 2019-20 academic year.
