Videos, podcasts and animations are, for many students, an engaging supplement to traditional lectures. Their effectiveness as learning tool is limited, however, when they are not captioned. Captions may be essential for students with some types of disabilities, but they are used and appreciated by nearly everyone. English language learners enjoy the ability to read along with a video, as do students who possess a visual-linguistic learning style. Students listening to a recorded lecture rely on captions to understand new vocabulary or make sense of a mumbled word. And who doesn’t enjoy the ability to search for a word or phrase in the transcript of a long video or podcast? In this session you will learn a simplified a process for creating captions using Microsoft Word and Camtasia Studio. Additionally, we will share with you one academic department’s journey in implementing a departmental captioning process. The Department Occupational Therapy has developed and is piloting a process for captioning all multimedia content in the curriculum with readily available software tools.
Goals and Target Audience:
1. Share the multiple benefits of captioning for diverse learners from a Universal Design for Learning perspective. 2. Models for captioning in higher education. 3. Describe and demonstrate do-it-yourself captioning model. 4. Share the experience of one academic unit's journey in piloting a do-it-yourself captioning model. Audience: faculty, instructional designers, online course developers, video producers.

Lecture capture is a fast-growing feature that faculty are adding to their classes. It’s very popular among campus students, and more advanced versions can be used as part of distance education. Campus students get an online-delivered recording with your audio and computer screen, which makes it easy for them to review lectures and understand the material better. Distance students also get a camera view of the teacher. Placing links to your lecture captured class in RamCT protects your recordings and makes it easy for students to find the recordings.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals - teach faculty about lecture capture options.
