Instructional Technologist, Blue Ridge Community College
The increasing availability of tools allowing faculty to create their own digital media has led to a situation where much of the content created is not accessible to those with hearing difficulties. This presentation is focused on educating faculty and instructional support staff of the need for captioning instructional digital media and methodologies for accomplishing that. Participants will learn about options for captioning podcasts, video lectures, recorded PowerPoint, and other media. Using examples of videos and other media, participants will learn about a variety of methods for creating open and closed captioning for their digital media.
